I am trying to get a script running on a server with
Perl 4 - the script has a few lines that rely on
the "sprintf" command, Perl 4 seems to not know what this is, is something I can use instead of sprintf?
Much Thanks.

sprintf does exist in perl4.
Although unlike perl5 you can't just give it a bare list without ()
What's your code that gives the error?

Does that server system also have the perl4 man pages?

You were right about the parens that worked.
I have one last error in this script.
Which I will post as another question.
Ozo - go ahead and make your comment an answer

In perl4, use
sprintf(format,list)
not
(sprintf format,list)
