C++/print f and scan f


what is print f and scan f functions

Hello sadeq, thank you for the question.

printf is a C function for writing to an output stream, and scanf is a C function for reading input from an output stream. These functions are equivalent in terms of general functionality to cout and cin in C++.

I hope this information was helpful.
