int pcount() const;

Returns the number of characters that were output in the put area of the associated std::strstreambuf. Effectively calls rdbuf()->pcount()

Contents

Parameters

(none)

Return value

The number of characters in the put area, or zero if nothing was output.

Example

#include <strstream>
#include <iostream>
 
int main()
{
    std::ostrstream dyn; // dynamically-allocated output buffer
    dyn << "Test: " << 1.23;
    std::cout << "The size of the output is " << dyn.pcount()
              << " and it holds \"" << dyn.str() << "\"\n";
    dyn.freeze(false);
 
    char buf[10];
    std::ostrstream user(buf, 10); // user-provided output buffer
    user << 1.23; // note: no std::ends
    std::cout.write(buf, user.pcount());
    std::cout << '\n';
}

Output:

The size of the output is 10 and it holds "Test: 1.23"
1.23
