Printing size_t on MSW (%zu)


Hi all,


I have heard there are issues using "%zu" format specifier on
Windows/mingw, because mingw links against a very old Windows library that
does not support the C99 standard.

I have also heard that this isn't an issue anymore because of
__USE_MINGW_ANSI_STDIO in wxWidgets.

I tried to reproduce this problem on my Windows 10 machine but couldn't --
using %zu works fine.

Does anyone know if this is still a problem on any of our supported
