iof - Replacement for printf/scanf in C++

Many people wonder how to get the same effects using C++ streams as they would using printf/scanf. They are usually pointed to STL manipulators with std::setw etc.

There is at least one: the iof library at http://iof.sourceforge.net. There is also the boost format library (http://www.boost.org) but it doesn't support scanf-like input.
