Detailed Description

Nearly all of the I/O classes are parameterized on the type of characters they read and write. (The major exception is ios_base at the top of the hierarchy.) This is a change from pre-Standard streams, which were not templates.

For ease of use and compatibility, all of the basic_* I/O-related classes are given typedef names for both of the builtin character widths (wide and narrow). The typedefs are the same as the pre-Standard names, for example:

typedef basic_ifstream<char> ifstream;

Because properly forward-declaring these classes can be difficult, you should not do it yourself. Instead, include the <iosfwd> header, which contains only declarations of all the I/O classes as well as the typedefs. Trying to forward-declare the typedefs themselves (e.g., "class ostream;") is not valid ISO C++.

For more specific declarations, see http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/libstdc++/27_io/howto.html#10
