I admit, printfmt() needs some cleanup. fmt is supposed to point at the
begining of the conversion string ('%' for a conversion specifier and
'\' for a escape sequence) and end, well, points at the end of the
conversion string (one character after conversion characters like 'd' or
's'). end is necessary, so you can set "*end = '\0'", otherwise fmt
will include everything up unitl to the end of the complete format
I hope I made it clear now (which I'm not so sure of).
