sprintf in 4.2.1 & 4.3.1 gives different results.

echo sprintf(" %8.5s",$s); 

4.2.1: trunc 
4.3.1: truncate 

I Don't know if this is a new bug, an intended change, was a bug in 4.2.1 that's now fixed, or ?

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at and the instructions on how to report
a bug at

The new behavior is the correct one :-))

The new behaviour is wrong indeed. See bug #22227
