I think , In the input-output function ,scanf() function , It should be the most troublesome , Sometimes it gives us ridiculous results , But there must be a reason ....

First of all, let me make a statement , This log is not an introduction scanf() The use of various formant in the article ( There is no need for that , But you must be able to use it ).

I tried a lot of input , It includes some wrong exercises , Once upon a time scanf() From confusion to soberness , From sober again to confused ...... I don't know when it's the end , Who let C So deep ?

Post it here , I want to see it from time to time , I also want to know if my understanding is wrong , What's wrong ( So I have the cheek , It's on it ).

be careful , Keyboard buffer It is closely related to input , also , Type matching Yes Input is also very important !!

Let's move on to the topic :

scanf The operation of the flow follows the principle of type matching operation , If the type does not match , It will not read the input stream .
As a result, the input stream will be stranded , If the input stream is not empty ,scanf Will not wait for user input , Input directly from the buffer .
however ,scanf() How to match ? stdin What is it ?
There is very little about matching on the Internet , Some details still can't be found .
therefore , I came to a conclusion on my own :
example : scanf("%d,%d",&i,&j);  input :12 ,13 enter however ,j!=13. // be careful ,12 There is a space after it ,why?  
    reason : I explained that , stay scanf() in , Common characters in format string ( Does not include white space characters ) What we do is Strict matching , Because in the format string %d There's one at the back ',' 
, So enter the middle number 12 After must be a ','.

      scanf("1123%s",&str);  input :1123aaabb Time str by aaabb, however , input 24aabbdd Time ,  
It's going to go wrong , because 1123 Strict matching is required .

in addition :  scanf("%d/n",&i); printf("i=%d",i);      How to input to output : i=12    ?
It's not what you think it is , Have a chance to try it !
Some examples :
scanf() Is a return value Function of , What is its return value ? How to use this feature ?
scanf() Matching principle in : In this paper The fifth point Specific description ...
scanf() Starting conditions of data format matching in , End condition .
         as : %d ,/n End condition of equal type input .

          scanf("%d/n",&i);printf("%d",i);  input 12 enter , No output ,why?
scanf() End condition of function : When each Formant Match complete , And when there is a return at the end , End of function .
scanf("%s",str) Continuous input 127 You can't continue typing .  //TC in ,VC It seems to be 4000 many ..

// Indicates that the keyboard buffer length is one byte ? however   stdin->bsize( Buffer size ) In fact 512, And why ?
stdin Data residue in buffer :  scanf("%3s",str); c= getchar();  input : aaabbccc enter , 
here str="aaa",c='b';  // Data residue in buffer !
getch() No buffer , Directly receive the characters input on the keyboard .
         // In the example above , Add one ch=getch();  however getch() It can't be read bbccc Any one of them , explain
getch() And getchar() It's not the same , And they're right Enter The values read are also different !
An unusual format character :    %[]  , as   scanf("%[a-z]",str);   

input : abcdefdsaABCDEF  output :str="abcdefdsa" ;
How to use it? scanf() To enter a string with spaces ?   
scanf() When handling , One Enter There are two values sent to the buffer :   A return (10) , A new line (13). It can be used
getchar() To receive ( however , Can only receive /n, Namely 13).
In a scanf() Add a after the function fflush(stdin) Can clear input data residue ?  
   scanf("%3s",str); fflush(stdin); c=getchar();

   Direct input aaabbbddd enter , c Can you still get value ?
Here is a detailed explanation :
scanf() The return value of the function upon successful execution is the number of variables read successfully ,
in other words , You this scanf() There are several variables , If scanf() All functions read normally , Just go back to it . But here's another problem , If illegal data is entered , There may be residual information in the keyboard buffer .
scanf()- Function is a general terminal format input function , It comes from a standard input device ( keyboard ) Read the input information . Any inherent type of data can be read in and automatically transformed into the appropriate internal format .
sscanf() - Reads data from a string that matches the specified format .
Function prototype :
Int  sscanf( string str, string fmt, mixed var1, mixed var2 ... );
int  scanf( const char *format [,argument]... );
sscanf And scanf similar , All for input , Just the latter with the screen (stdin) Is the input source , The former takes a fixed string as the input source .
Among them format It can be one or more {%[*] [width] [{h | l | I64 | L}]type | ' ' | '/t' | '/n' |
wrong % Symbol }
as :  sscanf("123456", "%s", buf); 
     puts(buf);  // The result is : 123456
The following is mainly about it scanf() Usage of :
scanf The general form of function
scanf( Format control , Address table column )
int scanf(char *format[,argument,...]);
“ Format control ” It has the same meaning as printf function ;“ Address table column ” Is a list of addresses , Can be the address of a variable , Or the first address of the string .
scanf() Function returns the number of data items assigned successfully , Return on error EOF.
notes : 
scanf() White space characters ( include /n,space) Will make scanf() Function omits zero or one or more white space characters in input during a read operation , Whitespace can be space,tab, Line break
wait , Until the first non white space character appears .// The next format character is %c It's the same thing . as ,scanf("%d %c",&i,&ch); input :11            
A enter ,i=11,ch=A. here ch Not a space .
     A non white space character causes scanf() The function removes the same character as this non whitespace character on read in .
     as :  scanf("   %c",&ch);  input : After several carriage returns , input A,     ch=A. 
          scanf("5729%s",str); input :  5729okok              str=okok. 
But please note : When the first few of the input are not 5729 Time ( Even if you start with a space !), It will go wrong ,str The value does not change . 
scanf() in Format character explain
    %p Read in a pointer
    %[] Scan character set  
    %n The number of characters equivalent to the value read so far
    %s Read in a string , Encounter space , Tab or newline end .
    %c   %d   %i   %o  %x   %X  %c   
%f Enter a real number , It can be entered in decimal or exponential form .
%F   %e   %E   %g   %G 
%u Read in an unsigned decimal integer   
%% read % Symbol
Additional format description character table modifier explain
    L/l Length modifier input " long " data
h Length modifier input " short " data
W Integral constant Specifies the width of the input data
m Specifies the width of the input data
* asterisk Empty reading a data
Combined with the actual routine , One by one :
One :   "%d%d%d"
         Is to enter three values in decimal format . Input , You can use one or more spaces between two data ,tab key , Enter separated .
At run time, enter three values as follows :3,4,5 ↙( input a,b,c Value of ) perhaps 3,□4,□5 ↙( input a,b,c Value of )3,□□□4,□5 ↙( input a,b,c Value of )

It's all legal , But input 3□,4□□,5 ↙ error !!!!  

    // because scanf() The normal characters in the format string are matched exactly !
       In use "%c" Input , Spaces and “ Escape character ” As valid characters .

Two :    scanf() Function with a non white space character ( Include spaces , Skip , enter ) Start a data input ( %c Except of course ! But pay attention ,gets() Start with any character ! ).
scanf() When the function receives input data , End a data entry if :( It's not the end of the day scanf function ,scanf Function has data only in each data field , And press enter to finish ).
    ① Encounter space ,“ enter ”,“ Skip ” key .
② End of width .
③ Illegal input .   
// It's important here , If there is illegal input , The input of this data is ended , But the illegal data entered is still in the buffer , You can receive it with the corresponding data type ! You can also clear the buffer simply .
                       //     for example :
                         input : i love!
                         output : i


    // because love Yes %d It's a start input (scanf() Start with a non blank ), But because it's illegal ,

      So the beginning is the end ,i The value does not change !                        
Three .   scanf() Can the function correctly accept strings with spaces ? as : I love c! 

      // In fact, it can !!!
     char str[80];
     scanf("%s",str);          // input   I love c?   // result : output I
        analysis :  scanf() Scan to "I" The space after that is right str End of assignment for , And ignore the following "love c!" . It should be noted here that "love 
c!" It's still in the keyboard buffer
After debugging, we found that , In fact, the first and last pointers of the buffer string are already equal , That means the buffer is empty ,scanf() Function should just scan stdin flow , The remaining information is in the stdin in .

// actually , I tried , use scanf("%s",str) Continuous input 127 After characters , The keyboard buffer doesn't fit , in other words , Do not process the input , Continue typing , There was no response , Only enter enter is valid .

   To verify it :                
int main()
char str[80];
char str1[80];
char str2[80];
scanf("%s",str);          /* Enter here :I love you! */
sleep(3);                   /* Wait here 3 second , Tell you where the program runs */
scanf("%s",str1);        /* You don't need to type these two sentences , It's rescanning the keyboard buffer */
scanf("%s",str2);        /* You don't need to type these two sentences , It's rescanning the keyboard buffer */
return 0;
        input :I love  c!
output :
   that , How to input a string with spaces ?
   use gets() Certainly. , But we can also use it scanf(), because ,scanf() There is also an input format character that we don't use very often :    "%[]"
   special :%*[width] [{h | l | I64 | L}]type Indicates that those meeting the condition are filtered out , The value is not written to the target parameter
Support collection operations :    // be similar to   regular expression .

     %[a-z] Represents a match a reach z Any character in , Greed ( Match as much as possible )      //  or :  %[a-z1-9] Encounter non a~z,1~9 It's over .
     %[aB'] matching a,B,' A member of , Greed                      //  To blame a,b,' The character of is the end .
     %[^a] Match not a Any character of , Greed       scanf("%[^a]",str);  

    //  input :  ffddssaaff   Then extract ffddss To string str in . Scan to a It's the end right now .
  so , We can use it scanf("%[^/n]",str); To enter a string with spaces . // input :l love c! enter ,   be str For I love
     that scanf("%*[^/]/%[^@]",str); What about the role of ???  // Enter a string , intercept / reach @ Between the string ...

Four : Solve the problem of keyboard buffer pollution .  // Namely Residual information , Is this important .
    for example :
      When input : a enter b enter   output c1,c2 Value of : Obviously c2 Not for b.
    reason : take c2 use int Show it , have a look scanf() Function assigned to C In the end what is it? , The result is c2=10 .
          ASCII The value is 10 What is it? ? Line break /n.
          Every time we hit "Enter" key , Send one to the keyboard buffer “ enter ”(/r), One “ Line break "(/n).
          ad locum /r cover scanf() Function has been disposed of ( Let's just think so ^_^), and /n cover scanf() function “ error ” The land is given to c. 
                  // It seems that getch() Time , hit ENTER, It's a carriage return , also , It does not pass through the keyboard buffer , That is, the contents of the keyboard buffer have nothing to do with it !!!!!
                       I did a little experiment :  
                          printf("c1 %d/n",c1);
                          printf("c2 %d/n",c2);
                      // input aaabcdef output aaa input A output : 65,98  See !!!
                      // %3s Receive only aaa, Then enter one A, cover getch() receive , After output ,getchar() Continue fetching from the buffer
b , got it .
      The best way to solve this kind of problem is :  It can be in two scanf() Add a after the function fflush(stdin);        // function : Clear a stream   usage :
int fflush(FILE *stream);
     in addition , There is another method on Baidu Encyclopedia :  use getchar() and getch() receive .     however , We can see from the experiment above ,
getch() The buffer is not processed , It can't be dealt with scanf() Residual information of .
                // You can try it :
                                           getch();   // Suppose it is used to receive line breaks .
               // input A After return : c1 The value is 65,c2 by 13 , Line break .    

               // actually ,getch() Will wait for an input .
               // But getch() Replace with getchar() after , input :A enter B enter , output A B

Five : The following section of the program to enter two numbers , It's the end of the process , It's not the one you expect ,why?

  int main()
  int a;
  printf("input the data/n");
  scanf("%d/n",&a);       // There's a carriage return here /n, If you use scanf("%d  ",&a);   
printf("%d",a);               // The same thing will happen .
  return 0;
   // input : 11 enter   after , No output , Enter the space again , enter ,Tab Any number of , No output , When non blank characters are entered, such as input abc enter , There is output , The output is 11.
  // Analyze the reasons ( Not necessarily accurate , It should be explained in this way ):
     scanf() Is a terminal formatted input function , That is, by matching Yes Variable !!
     rule : for example about " %d/n" :

          The first space can be associated with the input buffer's Any number of White space character matching ( Include spaces , enter ,Tab), When the first non white space character is encountered , End its match , Then deal with it %d .
          %d It can be matched with consecutive numeric symbols , When the first non numeric symbol is encountered , End match , If the number of matching digits is 0, be %d The corresponding variable value remains unchanged .//
be careful ,%d With any non int Invalid character start matching , Even if it is '.' No exception , If input 12.30 be .30 Will not be read , Instead, it stays in the buffer .
          In the same way ,/n And also with One or more Enter,Tab,space matching , Until the first non White space character .
          same about "%d":  Start matching with the first non white space character in the buffer .
          however "%c" It's an exception , It matches the first character in the buffer , Whether blank or not , therefore , handle Characters entered +Enter Time , Be sure to pay attention to them Enter.
         So for the example above , Enter as : 11a Time , Press once to output 11, But don't forget , There are also a and /n  !!!   

Six : of stdin, It's actually a standard input file , by File * type .

   therefore , scanf("%s",str); It's equivalent to fscanf(stdin,"%s",str);

   however scanf() Can only be used for input 127 The following characters , in other words , Buffer can only hold 127 Characters +'/', So why stdin->bsize For
512 What about ?   // stay TC lower .
