Yes, I know what scanf() is. It's a function from the standard C
library, which scans stdin for a string fitting a particular format,
like those offered by printf. For instance:

  int multi;
  scanf("2x%d", &multi);

It also returns the number of arguments it matched with the format.
Furthermore, the behaviour of scanf/sscanf/fscanf can be mimiced
quite closely by using the va_start(), va_arg(), and va_end()
macros. Much like printf/sprintf/fprintf can be mimiced using
va_start(), vsprintf(), and va_end().

Now, what was the point?
