Could you post an example of displaying PETSCII characters with printf()?
Everything I have tried from the table on 376-378 has failed to generate any
PETSCII characters. I'm sure this is just my lack of understanding of cc65
(and C).

I'm just trying to display some PETSCII characters. Not exactly testing...
Learning is more like it. :) As you posted on the newsgroups, using cc65 is
much faster that working with Power C or Super C.
