That's the key point, thanks!
Another observation which comes to my mind: that this approach isNo. If there is a codecvt<> involved (is there? I didn't look,
I thought that was a filebuf<> thing) then showmanyc() should divide
the number of bytes by the maximum character size,
std::codecvt<>::max_length(). Remember it's returning an estimate,
really low level wrt the underflow (hack, indeed) can be seen clearly
from the fact that in this way we get the size in bytes, not the
number of chars in the internal representation.
Therefore, it seems to me, showmanyc will have to use also the
a lower bound, and shouldn't be doing too much work.
Just a lower bound, so max_length() suffices and we are done once and
for all even for
encodings -1 (not yet implemented) and 0 (partially so).
