Left/Right justify ?

printf("%5d %20s %2c %8s %10s %10s %10s\n", test1, test2, test3....);

Above printf statement will print right justify. How do I make it left justify ?

//you did not need the \t in my answer
// to left justify you use the - flag after the %
#include <stdio.h>
void main(){
printf("\nright\n%10c%5i\%20x",'z',2,13);
printf("\nleft\n%-10c%-5i\%-20x",'z',2,13);

use minus signs
printf("[%5d][%20s][%9d][%8s]", 1, "this", 14, "that");

printf("[%-5d][%-20s][%-9d][%-8s]", 1, "this", 14, "that");
