Its a version of sprintf that allows you set the maximum bytes it will write

        snprintf(buf, sizeof(buf), "%s-%d-%d:%s", somestring, v1, v2, p);

There are free implementations of it around. Basically my side of things is
I work for a vendor who ships Lynx, so I need to try and ensure Lynx is as
secure as possible. Now Im looking only at Linux libc5 or higher so while
snprintf isnt a major standard its ok for me. Im also not sure how I can
replace some of the snprintfs I've used with lynx specific code to make things
