Depends on your definition of "correct software". I'd say correct software has no bugs at all... Anyway, I can think of cases where the usually correct assumption is made that the floating point delimiter is one byte, while some locales maybe need two bytes. This could then of course lead to memory corruption when using sprintf with a too small buffer. Bye Tim
