    Format problem?

    Code:
    int main() {
    	std::cout <<  std::format("{:< 8f}", .111111);
    }
    displays 0.111111 but I need .111111 (no initial 0).
    Is this possible just using format or do I need to manipulate the produced string?

    I never used std::format, so can only guess.
    Try
    Code:
    std::format("{:< .8f}", .111111);
