When one uses the standard sprintf function that formats and copies your argument to a buffer, it is highly recomended that the argument be null terminated.
If the argument is an int or a long, etc, are these primitive types by default null terminated?

Hi ipaman,

You do not have to worry about the built in types ... compiler knows very well how to handle them ... It is the likes of strings which are not natively supported that we need to think about
