       irheostream, orheostream - large data streams


       This  class  provides  a stream interface for large data management.  File decompresion is
       assumed using gzip and a recursive seach in a directory list is provided for input.

            orheostream foo("NAME", "suffix");

       is like

            ofstream foo("NAME.suffix").

       However, if NAME does not end with `.suffix', then `.suffix' is automatically  added.   By
       default, compression is performed on the fly with gzip, adding an additional `.gz' suffix.
       The flush action is nicely handled in compression mode:


       This feature allows intermediate results to be available during  long  computations.   The
       compression can be deactivated while opening a file by an optional argument:

            orheostream foo("NAME", "suffix", io::nogz);

       An  existing compressed file can be reopen in append mode: new results will be appended at
       the end of an existing file:

            orheostream foo("NAME", "suffix", io::app);


               irheostream foo("NAME","suffix");

       is like

               ifstream foo("NAME.suffix").

       However, we look at a search path environment variable RHEOPATH  in  order  to  find  NAME
       while suffix is assumed.  Moreover, gzip compressed files, ending with the `.gz' suffix is
       assumed, and decompression is done.

       Finally, a set of useful functions are provided.


       The following code:

               irheostream is("results", "data");

       will recursively look for a `results[.data[.gz]]' file in the directory mentionned by  the
       RHEOPATH environment variable.

       For instance, if you insert in our ".cshrc" something like:

               setenv RHEOPATH ".:/home/dupont:/usr/local/math/demo"

       the  process  will  study the current directory `.', then, if neither `' nor
       `' exits, it scan all subdirectory of the current directory. Then, if  file  is
       not founded, it start recusively in `/home/dupond' and then in `/usr/local/math/demo'.

       File  decompression  is  performed  by  using  the  gzip  command, and data are pipe-lined
       directly in memory.

       If the file start with `.' as `./square' or with a `/' as `/home/oscar/square', no  search
       occurs and RHEOPATH environment variable is not used.

       Also,  if  the  environment variable RHEOPATH is not set, the default value is the current
       directory `.'.

       For output stream:

               orheostream os("newresults", "data");

       file compression is assumed, and "" will be created.

       File loading and storing are mentionned by a message, either:

               ! load "./"


               ! file "./" created.

       on the clog stream.  By adding the following:

               clog << noverbose;

       you turn off these messages
        (see iorheo(4)).
