NAME

       vsprintf - Format a string and place it in a buffer

SYNOPSIS

       int vsprintf  (char * buf, const char * fmt, va_list args);

ARGUMENTS

       buf    The buffer to place the result into

       fmt    The format string to use

       args   Arguments for the format string

DESCRIPTION

       The  function  returns  the  number of characters written into buf. Use
       vsnprintf or vscnprintf in order to avoid buffer overflows.

       probably want sprintf instead.
