NAME

       FBB::Ifdstream - Input Stream initialized by a File Descriptor

SYNOPSIS

       #include <bobcat/ifdstream>

DESCRIPTION

       FBB::IFdStream  objects  may  be  used  to  extract  information  from a device whose file
       descriptor is available.

       File descriptors are not defined within the context of  C++,  but  they  can  be  used  on
       operating systems that support the concept. Realize that using file descriptors introduces
       operating system dependencies.

       Note that sockets can be used as file descriptors.

NAMESPACE

       FBB
       All constructors, members, operators and manipulators, mentioned  in  this  man-page,  are
       defined in the namespace FBB.

INHERITS FROM

       std::istream

CONSTRUCTORS

       o      IFdStream(int fd, size_t n = 1):
              The  constructor  initializes the object to read from descriptor fd, using a buffer
              of size n, by default having size 1.  The copy constructor is not available.

MEMBER FUNCTIONS

       All members of std::istream are available, as FBB::IFdStream  inherits  from  this  class.
       There are no additional members.

EXAMPLE

       See the clientsocket(3bobcat) man-page for an example showing how to use IFdStream.

FILES

SEE ALSO

BUGS

       The IFdStream object uses a IFdStreamBuf for its std::streambuf. This buffer is associated
       with the file descriptor passed to IFdStream’s constructor. When the IFdStream object goes
       out  of scope the device (file, socket, etc.) to which the file descriptor that was passed
       to IFdStream’s constructor is not closed.
