Hi,
   I am trying to format some text using sprintf. The text itself
contains the percent sign (%).

When I use it without any escape character, as expected ruby throws
error (unkonown format sequence).

When I use the "\%" sequence ruby complaints when the "\%" is
somewhere in the text. When it is at the end it works but I don't want
it there.

When I use the "%%" sequence, I get the exact sequence as output ("%%"
is printed!!).. \

Has anyone observed this behavior? Am I doing something wrong or it is
a ruby bug?

Thanks in advance,
Efthimios.
