# is valid for o, x, X, e, E, f, g, G, undefined behaviour for others.

0 is valid for d, i, o, u, x, X, e, E, f, g, and G, undefined behaviour
  for others.

- is valid for all specifiers

+ is defined for "signed conversions", which I guess is d, i, e, E, f, F, g.
  Valid (but has no effect) for others.

The h, l, and L flags are not relevant, since we don't support those.
