Detailed Description

template<typename _CharT, typename _Traits>

class std::basic_ostream< _CharT, _Traits >::sentry" Performs setup work for output streams.

Objects of this class are created before all of the standard inserters are run. It is responsible for exception-safe prefix and suffix operations.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

template<typename _CharT, typename _Traits> std::basic_ostream< _CharT, _Traits >::sentry::sentry (basic_ostream< _CharT, _Traits > & __os) [explicit]

The constructor performs preparatory work.

Parameters:

__os The output stream to guard.

If the stream state is good (__os.good() is true), then if the stream is tied to another output stream, is.tie()->flush() is called to synchronize the output sequences.

If the stream state is still good, then the sentry state becomes true (okay).

template<typename _CharT, typename _Traits> std::basic_ostream< _CharT, _Traits >::sentry::~sentry () [inline]

Possibly flushes the stream. If ios_base::unitbuf is set in os.flags(), and std::uncaught_exception() is true, the sentry destructor calls flush() on the output stream.

Member Function Documentation

template<typename _CharT, typename _Traits> std::basic_ostream< _CharT, _Traits >::sentry::operator bool () const [inline], [explicit]

Quick status checking.

Returns:

The sentry state.

For ease of use, sentries may be converted to booleans. The return value is that of the sentry state (true == okay).
