Subject: printf scientific notation?

> I'll try this again, with a new topic and a better description.
> Can PHP print floating point numbers using scientific notation?
> (like 1.32e+5) sscanf reads them ok using %f, but I'd like to print
> them with %e or %g and the printf documentation doesn't mention them.
> I've tried %e anyway and it fails to print the exponent part.
> I've looked at the source code to PHP a little but with the IFDEFs
> I'm not sure which routine is actually being used. I sort of have the
> impression it is just calling the C routines directly so the %e and
> %g should work?
> Linux (RH 7.1), Apache (1.3.20), PHP (4.0.6)
> Thanks.
