Hi,

Please look into the below statement
 
printf("%08d.log\n",FSname) ;

-----
In the above line instead of "08"(meant for leading zeros),
i need to substitute it using a Variable(say "Cnt") which
contain the value(08), how could i use the variable "Cnt"
in the statement. The value could be changing, that's why
i need to use a variable.

To put in simple terms, how could i substitute the VALUE
OF A VARIABLE within " " (double spaces).

Early solution favourable.

How about:

   int count = 8;
   char buffer[100];

   sprintf(buffer, "\%0%d.log\\n", count);
   printf(buffer,FSName);

I haven't tested this, so I don't know if it will work. It looks like it should though.

Hi paul

Thanks, This worked fine. Could you also make a suggessition to solve the below problem  actually i want to open files which i meant for printing in the printf statement.

Below is the unsuccessful code which i have written.
-----
  printf("%0*d.log\n",len,FSname) ;
  char ReFile[len] ;
  strcpy(ReFile,FSname) ;
  strcat(Refile,".log") ;
  FILE *fp=fopen(ReFile,w) ;
  fclose(fp) ;
-----

which does not contain the leading zeros.

I am not sure if this is what you are after, but anyway...

sprintf(Refile, "%0*d.log\n",len,FSname) ;
FILE *fp=fopen(ReFile,w) ;
fclose(fp) ;
