NAME

       FBB::OHexStreambuf - Writes characters written to an ostream as hex values

SYNOPSIS

       #include <bobcat/ohexstreambuf>
       Linking option: -lbobcat

DESCRIPTION

       OHexStreambuf is a specialization of FBB::OFilterStreambuf inserting all the characters it
       receives to a destination file  as  2-character  wide  hexadecimal  values.  Optionally  a
       maximum linelength can be specified.

       Note that all information received by an OHexStreambuf object is inserted as (a series of)
       hexadecimal values, not only plain characters. E.g., when  inserting  the  value  123  the
       characters  ’1’,  ’2’  and  ’3’  are  successively inserted and so this will result in the
       string 313233 being inserted into the destination stream.

NAMESPACE

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

INHERITS FROM

       FBB::OFilterStreambuf

CONSTRUCTOR

       o      OFoldStreambuf(std::ostream &stream, size_t width = 0):
              The  hexadecimal  characters produced by the OFoldStreambuf object will be inserted
              into stream. Optionally the maximum line width (in number  of  characters)  may  be
              specified  using  width.  The  (default)  value 0 indicates that no line breaks are
              requested.

       The destructor writes any buffered information to the destination  stream  and  will  then
       flushes the destination stream.

MEMBER FUNCTIONS

       All  members  of  FBB::OFilterStreambuf,  in  particular  its out() and open() members are
       available, as FBB::OHexStreambuf inherits from this class.

       o      size_t size() const:
              This member returns the next column offset where  the  next  hexadecimal  character
              will  appear.  If  a  maximum line length is requested and size() does not return 0
              then the last line inserted was not terminated by a ’\n’ character.  See  also  the
              example below.

              This member’s return value is undefined if  no maximum line length was requested.

PROTECTED MEMBER FUNCTION

       The  member  listed  in  this section implements the tasks of the comparably named virtual
       function in the class’s private interface. This separates the redefinable  interface  from
       the  user-interface. The class OHexStreambuf can, in accordance with Liskov’s Substitution
       Principle, be used as a std:streambuf; but it also offers a facility for classes  deriving
       from OHexStreambuf. This facility is listed here.

       o      int pSync():
              The contents of the OHexStreambuf’s internal buffer is flushed.

STATIC MEMBER

       o      std::string text2bin(std::string const &in):
              This  static  member  can  be  used  to  convert a series of hexadecimal characters
              generated by a OHexStreambuf object back to their binary form. E.g, when called  as
              OHexStreambuf::text2bin("736d616c6c206976")  then  the  returned  std::string  will
              contain 8 characters, having respectively the binary values 0x73, 0x6d, 0x61, 0x6c,
              0x6c, 0x20, 0x69, and 0x76.

              This  function  does not verify whether its argument is properly formed. A properly
              formed argument consists of an even number of hexadecimal  number  characters  (’0’
              until  ’9’,  ’a’  until  ’f’  (or  uppercase)). For improperly formed arguments the
              return value is undefined.

EXAMPLE

           #include <iostream>
           #include <bobcat/ohexstreambuf>

           using namespace std;
           using namespace FBB;

           int main()
           {
               OHexStreambuf ohex(cout, 40);
               ostream out(&ohex);
               out << cin.rdbuf();
               if (ohex.size())
                   cout << ’\n’;
           }
