The evils of scanf

PS - Remeber,[sic] scanf lives in its own little world, with its own little theory about what constitutes an input and when exactly it should consider the input "consumed". Its theory doesn't mesh very well with what the rest of the computer considers input, much less with anything sane, but if you're going to use scanf, you have to do it its way.
