Formatted & Unformatted Input / Output
Studying thru the Input & Output functions.
Unformatted I/O functions...(such as getchar, fgets)
Formatted I/O functions.... (such as scanf, fscanf)
But,,, cant quite put my fingure on the differences between unformatted I/O and formatted I/O.
printf is formatted output. Is it because whatever you write between the
" " can be printed out (output) to the screen and that is refered as "being formatted"??
getchar is UNformatted input. Is it because it takes only one char each? (or did it take string also..?)
I am learning the 'details' of formatted and unformatted I/O but not quite sure about the most important thing, what is unformatted and formatted anyway?
Would anyone explain me or know a good web page to explain this..?
