        sprintf and snprintf where things I used to really missing from C. 

Here is a straight forward snprintf implementation.

    public static String snprintf( int size, String format, Object ... args ) {
        StringWriter writer = new StringWriter( size );
        PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter( writer );
        out.printf( format, args );
        out.close();
        return writer.toString();
    }
