// The o, x, X, and any floating-point specifier

#include <stdio.h>

 

int main()

{

int c = 1427;

float p = 1427.0;

 

printf("o, x, X, and any floating-point specifiers\n");

printf("Compare the output with the source code\n");

printf("-----------------------------------------\n\n");

printf("%#o\n", c);

printf("%#x\n", c);

printf("%#X\n", c);

printf("\n%#g\n", p);

printf("%#G\n", p);

 

return 0;

}
