void open( const std::string &filename,                                  
           ios_base::openmode mode = ios_base::in );
(since C++11)

Opens and associates the file with name filename with the file stream.

Calls setstate(failbit) on failure.

Calls clear() on success. (since C++11)

The first version effectively calls rdbuf()->open(filename, mode | ios_base::in).

The second version effectively calls open(filename.c_str(), mode).
