sprintfn(%args) -> [status, msg, result, meta]

Like sprintf, but use sprintfn() from Text::sprintfn.

Unlike in sprintf, with this function, hash will also be processed.

Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments):

  • format* => str

  • in => any

    Input stream (e.g. array or filehandle).

  • out => any

    Output stream (e.g. array or filehandle).

  • skip_array => bool (default: 0)

  • skip_hash => bool (default: 0)

  • skip_non_number => bool (default: 0)

Return value:

Returns an enveloped result (an array). First element (status) is an integer containing HTTP status code (200 means OK, 4xx caller error, 5xx function error). Second element (msg) is a string containing error message, or 'OK' if status is 200. Third element (result) is optional, the actual result. Fourth element (meta) is called result metadata and is optional, a hash that contains extra information.
