Problem with fprintf function

1 view (last 30 days)
Hi, This is my command window. The second last column of "bnum" is a bit inward in the middle. I don't know how to make it exactly align with upper section of the same column. I use this line of code to achieve this. Any help guys ?
fprintf('C.T = %d:%d\t\t Lambda = %d\t\t OT = %.2f Gbps\t\t snum = %d\t\t pnum = %d\t\t bnum = %d\t\t S.T = %.2f sec.\n',clk_time(4),clk_time(5),ilambda,now_offer_traffic,snum,pnum,bnum,timenow);

It’s a bit difficult to read, but it’s generally best to assign a fixed-width field if you know the maximum width, rather than using the default width.
I would change the ‘pnum’ format to:
pnum = %4d
or even a wider field if ‘pnum’ will have more than 4 digits. It might be worth setting all the other fields to the widest (longest) you expect them to be in order to keep the columns aligned.
