Hello all,

I use the print method with % for formatting my output to
the console since I am quite familiar with printf from my
C days, and I like it quite well.

I am wondering if there is a way to use print to write
formatted output to files?

Also, it seems like I read that formatting with print is
going away eventually and we should start using something
else? Is that true and if so, what?
