When I add a line
I do get a warning with -Wall:
test.cc: In function `int main()':
test.cc:6: warning: double format, different type arg (arg 2)
Similarly, /usr/include/stdio.h specifies __printf__ attributes [*] for
functions like snprintf, vsnprintf, vasprintf, asprintf, vdprintf and
dprintf. It does not do so for vfprintf. This looks like a bug in libc6-dev.
[*] See http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc/Function-Attributes.html
UNFAIR Term applied to advantages enjoyed by other people which we tried
to cheat them out of and didn't manage. See also DISHONESTY, SNEAKY,
