Hi Marcus,

The right format specifier for unsigned integers is %u and not %d, so as

Since the type is 'uint32_t' rather than 'unsigned' the correct specifier is:

#include <stdint.h>
printf("blah %" PRIu32 " more blah", v);
Does "correct" in this case have any practical significance? It worsens
the readability of the code quite a lot IMO, so if the significance is
purely theoretical it's a quite high price to pay for correctness. I've
used the PRI* macros in other projects, but never for anything smaller
than 64 bit integers.
