String formatting

Recommended Posts

I wish to print two strings, the first up to 70 characters and the 2nd 10 characters. I want the 2nd field to start in column 71 as it is a pass/fail column and therefore want it to be aligned. I tried the string format

$string = stringFormat("%-70s, %10s", $str, $str2)

This however sets the max length of the string field is does not pad it. Is there a formatting feature that can do this or do I need to pad my string with blanks?

Thanks,

jvh
