The platform dependent length modifier for conversion specifiers for scanning and printing values of type #gint16 or #guint16. It is a string literal, but doesn’t include the percent-sign, such that you can add precision and length modifiers between percent-sign and conversion specifier and append a conversion specifier.
The following example prints “0x7b”;
gint16 value = 123; g_print ("%#" G_GINT16_MODIFIER "x", value);
This is not necessarily the correct modifier for printing and scanning
int16_t values, even though the in-memory representation is the same.
Standard C macros like
SCNd16 should be used for
