I've been trying to read all I can about the %n conversion specifier, but I'm having trouble with it. In the following code, I generate ten random numbers between 1 - 1000 and save each to an element of the array. I need to use %n to keep a running total of the characters, but can't get it to work. Any idea how to do this?

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <time.h>

int main()
  int x;
  int num[10] = {0};
  int count = 0;
  int total = 0;
  int _set_printf_count_output = 2;

  for(count = 1; count <= 10; count++)
          x = 1 + (rand()%1000);
          num[count] = x;

          printf( "Value:%d\tTotal Characters:%d\n", x, total);

return 0;

Well Nevermind ... I got it figured out just after posting this. Sorry about that. Sometimes it takes posting the question before the answer comes to mind ...
