Section at p7 states that "A length specifier is added to the conversion function, if needed, as indicated in Table 56." However, Table 56 uses the term "length modifier", not "length specifier".

Proposed resolution:

In at p7, change the text "A length specifier is added ..." to be "A length modifier is added ..."


C uses the term "length modifier". We should be consistent.
