std::experimental::ostream_joiner(3) C++ Standard Libary std::experimental::ostream_joiner(3)


std::experimental::ostream_joiner - std::experimental::ostream_joiner


Defined in header <experimental/iterator>
template< class DelimT,

class CharT = char, (library fundamentals TS v2)
class Traits = std::char_traits<CharT>>

class ostream_joiner;

std::experimental::ostream_joiner is a single-pass LegacyOutputIterator that writes
successive objects into the std::basic_ostream object for which it was constructed,
using operator<<, separated by a delimiter. The delimiter is written to the output
stream between every two objects that are written. The write operation is performed
when the iterator (whether dereferenced or not) is assigned to. Incrementing the
ostream_joiner is a no-op.

In a typical implementation, the only data members of ostream_joiner are a pointer
to the associated std::basic_ostream, the delimiter, and a bool member that
indicates whether the next write is for the first element in the sequence.

Compared to std::ostream_iterator, ostream_joiner prints the delimiter sequence one
fewer time, and is not templated on the type of the object to be printed.

Non-member functions

creates a ostream_joiner object, deducing the template's type
