Missing format specifier.

I’ve been practicing my F# recently – I took a gap for a little bit, and just got back into it. I’ve been working through my ‘Foundations of F#’ book, and have hit a slight snag.

There is one line of code I can’t get to compile, I get the ‘Missing format specifier.’ error for the following line:

let print x = printfn “A%” x

The intellisense highlights under the “A%” bit.. Any ideas?

The hunt continues!
Update – worked it out, it should be “%A” rather than “A%” – looks like a typo!!

    I hit the same thing today. However, while looking at the various sites that came up as a result of search on Google, I realized that the format specifiers were starting with a percent and then followed by a character rather than the other way around! I gave it a try and that worked! πŸ™‚

    Thanks, but for making me feel that hadn’t I figured it out, your page was there to help me out! πŸ™‚

    Have a great day ahead!
