Summary0001566: feature wish: support printf "precision" for strings
DescriptionFull_Name: Eric Cooper
Version: 3.06
OS: linux
Submission from: (

Please consider supporting the "precision" field in the %s printf conversion.
In C, this limits the printed string to that many characters. For example,
    printf "%-8.8s" string
would print exactly 8 characters, no matter how long [string] is. And it should
work if the spec is indirect:
    printf "%*.*s" 8 8 string
