[Scilab-users] mprintf("%c") actual action, and vs mprintf("%s") ?

Hello,

The printf_conversion page tells that the ""%c" directive accepts and displays an integer value converted to a character".
Yet, with Scilab 6.1.0

--> msprintf("AB %c\n", 3)
msprintf: Wrong number of input arguments: data doesn't fit with format.

--> mprintf("AB %c\n", "5")
AB 5

--> mprintf("AB %c\n", "R")
AB R

--> mprintf("AB %c\n", "RB")
AB RB

So, what's the difference between the %c and %s printing formats?

The Scilab 5.5 behavior was the same, except that only the first character of the input was printed:

-->msprintf("AB %c\n", "RB")
 ans  =
 AB R  

Regards
Samuel
