Detailed Description

   template<typename CharT, typename Traits = std::char_traits<CharT>>class redi::basic_rpstream<
       CharT, Traits >
       template for Restricted PStreams.

       Writing to an rpstream opened with pmode pstdin writes to the standard input of the
       command. It is not possible to read directly from an rpstream object, to use an rpstream
       as in istream you must call either basic_rpstream::out() or basic_rpstream::err(). This is
       to prevent accidental reads from the wrong input source. If the rpstream was not opened
       with pmode pstderr then the class cannot read the process' stderr, and
       basic_rpstream::err() will return an istream that reads from the process' stdout, and vice
       versa. Reading from an rpstream opened with pmode pstdout and/or pstderr reads the
       command's standard output and/or standard error. Any of the process' stdin, stdout or
       stderr that is not connected to the pstream (as specified by the pmode) will be the same
       as the process that created the pstream object, unless altered by the command itself.

       Constructor that initialises the stream by starting a process. Initialises the stream
       buffer by calling do_open() with the supplied arguments.

       Parameters:
           command a string containing a shell command.
           mode the I/O mode to use when opening the pipe.

       = pstdout|pstdin) [inline]
       Constructor that initialises the stream by starting a process. Initialises the stream
       buffer by calling do_open() with the supplied arguments.

       Parameters:
           file a string containing the pathname of a program to execute.
           argv a vector of argument strings passed to the new program.
           mode the I/O mode to use when opening the pipe.
