example for a variable parameter list function?

basically I'd like to re-direct the fprintf function..
to allow me a little more control of error messages.

the idea is simple, write a new function

flogf( "a format string - %s %d %c \n", var1, var2,... );

then define flogf to pass these variables through and write to either stderr, to a file, or both depending on the configuration...

Does anyone have an example to illustrate how this is done?

thx, George

Sure, just use a function similar to this one:

#define LOG_REPORT_BUFSIZE      2048    //  way too big, but as anything
                                       //  may be passed in...

void    __cdecl DbgPrintf       (   char*   __pszFormat,    ...)
{
   static  char    s_acOutput      [   LOG_REPORT_BUFSIZE  +   MAX_PATH];
   static  char    s_acBuf         [   LOG_REPORT_BUFSIZE];

   va_list         args;

   va_start    (   args,   __pszFormat);

   vsprintf   (   s_acBuf,    __pszFormat,    args);

   sprintf    (   s_acOutput,
                   "%s%s",
                   s_acBuf,
                   strchr  (   s_acBuf,    '\n')   ?   "\0"    :   "\r\n"
               );

   // wite 's_acOutput' to file, stderr, or to what you want :o)

   va_end  (   args);
}
