Defined in header <ios>
const std::error_category& iostream_category();
(since C++11)

Obtains a reference to the static error category object for iostream errors. The object is required to override the virtual function error_category::name() to return a pointer to the string "iostream". It is used to identify error codes provided in the exceptions of type std::ios_base::failure.

Example

#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
 
int main()
{
    std::ifstream f("doesn't exist");
    try {
        f.exceptions(f.failbit);
    } catch (const std::ios_base::failure& e) {
        std::cout << "Caught an ios_base::failure.\n"
                  << "Error category: " << e.code().category().name() << '\n';
    }
}

Output:

Caught an ios_base::failure.
Error category: iostream
