NAME

       textprintf_ex - Formatted output of a string. Allegro game programming library.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <allegro.h>

       void textprintf_ex(BITMAP *bmp, const FONT *f, int x, int y, int color, int bg, const char
       *fmt, ...);

DESCRIPTION

       Formatted text  output,  using  a  printf()  style  format  string.  Due  to  an  internal
       limitation,  this function can't be used for extremely long texts.  If you happen to reach
       this limit, you can work around it by using uszprintf() and textout_ex(), which don't have
       any. Example:

          int player_score;
          ...
          textprintf_ex(screen, font, 10, 10, makecol(255, 100, 200),
                        -1, "Score: %d", player_score);
