[I'm not a language wizard.]

It looks OK to me.  Arrays are passed by pointer.
  buf is the same as &buf[0]

The compiler should complain if it is wrong.

A quick google found examples without the &.

For production code I'd want to tell viScanf the max length.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
