    Description

      Today we have some inconsistencies in how we name our integer printing format specifiers. I'd like to change this to be consistent.

      Current suggestion:

      // Guide to the suffixes used in the format specifiers for integers:
      // - print the decimal value: 745565
      // _X - print as hexadecimal, without leading 0s: 0x12345
      // _X_0 - print as hexadecimal, with leading 0s: 0x00012345
      // _H - print as hexadecimal, without 0x prefix
      // _W(w) - prints w sized string with the given value right
      // adjusted. Use -w to print left adjusted.
      //
      // Note that the PTR format specifiers print using 0x with leading zeros,
      // just like the _X_0 version for integers.
