I would like to print a float without unnecessary characters. 0.2, 1.25, 0.02, but in case of lot of digits, I would like to cut the last digits: 1.234 to 1.23 %f, %.2f is not good I think

If you are looking for a way to round off the decimal values, see the below thread:

The problem is that %.2f is not good for me, since I dont want to show unnecessary zeros! For example 0.50 instead of 0.5. But 0.45 should be 0.45

There is no formatting option that does exactly what you want. You could switch to using '%g' instead of '%f', this does not print trailing zeros, but the precision is then the number of significant digits instead of the number of digits after the decimal point. Furthermore '%g' switches to exponential notation if the magnitude of the number is too big or too small.
For the examples, you've given:
sprintf(n, '%.4g')

%.2g rather than %.4g for the posted requirements.
