|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0001438: minor feature request: printf and binary digits|
|Description||Scanf supports reading binary via %i, but Printf does not support|
printing binary (%b is taken by boolean, which is symmetric with
scanf). Perhaps %B?
|Tags||No tags attached.|

You will be glad to know that the working sources for Scanf and Printf
treat %b as binary notation for integers and %B as a boolean Caml token
(symetrically to %C and %S).
An experimental binary printing implementation is also included in
Printf. It has to be reworked and generalized (or drastically
simplified) but is functionning.

Implemented by PW 2002-10-15
removed by DD 2003-07-01 because of incompatibility problems (PR#1675)
There doesn't seem to be much demand for this feature. If someone can come up with a compelling argument, a good choice of letter (given that B and b are already taken), and a patch, we might include it.
