Constructor & Destructor Documentation

std::basic_ostream::sentry::sentry ( basic_ostream< _CharT, _Traits > &  __os) [explicit]

The constructor performs preparatory work.

osThe output stream to guard.

If the stream state is good (os.good() is true), then if the stream is tied to another output stream, is.tie()->flush() is called to synchronize the output sequences.

If the stream state is still good, then the sentry state becomes true (okay).

References std::basic_ostream::flush(), and std::ios_base::failbit.

std::basic_ostream::sentry::~sentry ( ) [inline]

Possibly flushes the stream.

If ios_base::unitbuf is set in os.flags(), and std::uncaught_exception() is true, the sentry destructor calls flush() on the output stream.
