       FBB::SharedStreambuf - streambuf interfacing to shared memory


       #include <bobcat/sharedstreambuf>
       Linking option: -lpthread -lbobcat


       This  class  implements  a  specialization  of  the  std::streambuf class, allowing stream
       classes   (std::istream,   std::ostream,   FBB::ISharedStream,   FBB::OSharedStream    and
       FBB::SharedStream to perform I/O operations on shared memory. FBB::SharedStreambuf objects
       interface to an FBB::SharedStream objects.


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


       std::streambuf,  FBB::SharedEnum__  (cf.  sharedmemory(3bobcat)  for  a description of the
       latter class).


       o      SharedStreambuf():
              The  default  constructor  defines  a  stub  SharedStreambuf  object  that   cannot
              immediately  be  used to access shared memory. To use it, its member setMemory must
              first be called.

       o      SharedStreambuf(size_t maxSize, SizeUnit sizeUnit,  std::ios::openmode  openMode  =
              std::ios::in | std::ios::out, size_t access = 0600):
              This  constructor  creates  a  shared  memory segment having a capacity of at least
              maxSize * sizeUnit bytes. By default, the  shared  memory  segment  is  opened  for
              reading  and writing. Different from the open modes used for file streams, creating
              a shared memory stream with open modes ios::in | ios::out is OK. In this  case  the
              shared  memory  segment  is  created  and  once information has been written to the
              shared memory it can also be read again. The  shared  memory’s  access  rights  are
              defined  by the access parameter, using the well-known (chmod(1)) way to define the
              access rights for  the  owner,  the  group  and  others,  using  octal  digits.  If
              construction succeeds the shared memory is ready for use. If construction fails, an
              FBB::Exception is thrown.

       o      SharedStreambuf(int   id,   std::ios::openmode   openMode    =    std::ios::in    |
              This  constructor connects to a shared memory segment having ID id. If construction
              succeeds the shared memory is ready for use. If construction fails (e.g., no shared
              memory  segment  having  ID  id exists, an FBB::Exception is thrown. Specifying the
              ios::trunc flag or specifying ios::out without also specifying ios::in  immediately
              clears  the  contents  of  the shared memory.  ) Copy and move constructors are not


              The overloaded move and copy assignment operators are not available.


              All members of std::streambuf and the enum  values  kB,  MB,  and  GB,  defined  by
              FBB::SharedEnum__ are available.

       o      void clear():
              The  shared  memory  is first locked. Next, all shared data segment are returned to
              the operating system, after which the shared  memory  segment  is  unlocked  again.
              Returning  from clear the shared memory The FBB::SharedMemory object is effectively
              re-initialized, with offset and nReadable returning 0.

       o      int id() const:
              The ID of the shared memory segment is returned.

       o      void kill():
              Without locking the shared  memory  the  FBB::SharedStreambuf’s  shared  memory  is
              deleted. The FBB::SharedStreambuf object is unusable after returning from kill.

       o      void remove():
              The  shared  memory  is  locked,  and  the  FBB::SharedStreambuf’s shared memory is
              deleted. The FBB::SharedStreambuf object is unusable after returning from remove.

       o      void setMemory(SharedMemory &&tmp):
              The anonymous temporary SharedMemory object that is passed to setMemory defines the
              new  shared  memory segment to which the FBB::SharedStreambuf object interfaces. It
              can also be called to reuse a FBB::SharedStreambuf object again after calling  kill
              or remove.

       o      void memInfo(std::ostream &out):
              Information  about  the  SharedMemory  object  is inserted into the provide ostream
              object. The IDs of the shared segments, their sizes, the maximum number  of  shared
              memory  segments,  the number of bytes that can be read from the shared memory, and
              its actual storage capacity, etc., are displayed. The inserted information  is  not
              terminated by a final newline character.


       o      void setOpenMode(std::ios::openmode flag):
              The streambuf’s openmode is changed to the settings defined by flag. This member is
              used by, e.g., SharedStream::open, to adapt the FBB::SharedStreambuf’s openmode  to
              the flags that are passed to open.

       Note  that by default exceptions thrown from within a std::stream object are caught by the
       stream object, setting its ios::failbit flag.  To  allow  exceptions  to  leave  a  stream
       object, its exceptions member can be called, e.g., using:

           myStream.exceptions(ios::failbit | ios::badbit | ios::eofbit);
