I executed the following  printf  (in a  Korn shell  command-line)
                printf  't %2$s .\n'  3  55
and got the following response
        printf: illegal format character $

The following is an excerpt from the man-3 page for printf .

'man 3 printf' shows the man page for the C library function printf. 'man 1 printf' shows the man page for the printf *program*, which does not appear to support the $ format string.
