It seems to be safe to pass just a pointer to struct printf_spec. In fact, it would make sense to use this also in string() and __string() calls. Copying 64 bytes many times look useless. Do you think that other optimizations would be necessary? For example, marking the function as inline? Best Regards, Petr
