I agree. The primary argument I have read against them is there is no type checking and that is no longer true. VC++ gives warnings on types that don't match the format specifier. Plus, there's thing we refer to as testing. It can catch all of those errors. In short, I don't buy that argument at all. I have yet to see a compelling argument that sways me away from using printf and I have read them for at least twenty years.
