Did you try compiling and running it in a small test program? What is the output? Can you explain it yourself? Have a look at the API documentation for the printf() method in java.io.PrintStream for information on how printf() works.

Sorry, I may just want a quick answer from someone, in fact whenI looked the http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/api/java/util/Formatter.html page, I do understand why and how to get the output.

Thanks for your not so easy answer!
