[newbie] a rather simple question..

From: Peter d (death_comes_to_all@hotmail.com)

I stumbled over this in an sprintf line.. %-20.20s, i am only familiar with
%s and %d and so on.. what is the -20.20 for? is it to make a space before
or after it? could i use the same principle in my do_who command to make it
look nicer?

eg. if i want to make these lines aligned like this

Str: 18        Hp:   500/500
Dex: 15        Mana: 500/500

or is there another method i should use to make the hp and mana lines
independent of the previous lines?
