NAME

       FBB::mlm - Manipulator modifying left margins of OFoldStream objects

SYNOPSIS

       #include <bobcat/ofoldstream> or
       #include <bobcat/ofoldbuf>
       Linking option: -lbobcat

DESCRIPTION

       The  mlm  class  implements a manipulator that can be inserted into OFoldStream objects to
       modify the stream’s left margin by a requested amount. The  request  cannot  result  in  a
       negative  left  margin  value. If a negative left margin would be the arithmetic result of
       the request then left margin 0 will silently be used.

       Depending on the tab-setting of the OFoldStream the inserted value represents  the  number
       of  blank  space characters or the number of tab-characters that will be added to the left
       margin.

       The request will be processed at the next newline character  or  std::flush  or  std::endl
       manipulator  that is inserted into the stream. If a line is still empty once an mlm object
       and a flush manipulator are inserted into the stream then the  new  left  margin  will  be
       effective at the next word inserted into that line (cf., the example section below)

       A  bad_cast  exception  is thrown when the manipulator is inserted into an ostream that is
       not using a OFoldBuf buffer.

NAMESPACE

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

INHERITS FROM

       -

CONSTRUCTOR

       o      mlm(int addValue):

       Copy and move constructors (and assignment operators) are available.

MEMBER FUNCTIONS

       o      std::ostream &modify(std::ostream &out) const:
              This  member  is  normally  not  directly called from user-programs. Instead, it is
              called by the insertion operator when inserting the mlm manipulator.

EXAMPLE

           #include <iostream>
           #include <bobcat/ofoldstream>

           using namespace std;
           using namespace FBB;

           int main()
           {
               OFoldStream out(cout, 0, 80);
               out << "hello world (left margin is 0)" << mlm(4) << "\n"
                      "this uses a 4 character wide left margin\n" <<
                       mlm(-10) << flush <<
                       "left margin -6 changed to 0, active on this line\n";
           }
