Chapter 6 Output Formatting

DTrace provides the built-in printf and printaformatting functions, which you can use from your D programs to format output. The D compiler provides features that are not found in the C library's printf() routine, so be sure to read this chapter even if you are already familiar with printf.

This chapter also discusses the formatting behavior of the trace function and the default output format that is used by the dtrace command to display aggregations.
