Extracts up to
count immediately available characters from the input stream. The extracted characters are stored into the character array pointed to by
UnformattedInputFunction. After constructing and checking the sentry object,
- If rdbuf()->in_avail() == -1, calls setstate(eofbit) and extracts no characters.
- If rdbuf()->in_avail() == 0, extracts no characters.
- If rdbuf()->in_avail() > 0, extracts std::min(rdbuf()->in_avail(), count)) characters and stores them into successive locations of the characater array whose first element is pointed to by
|s||-||pointer to the character array to store the characters to|
|count||-||maximum number of characters to read|
 Return value
The number of characters actually extracted.
 Exceptionsfailure if an error occurred (the error state flag is not goodbit) and exceptions() is set to throw for that state.
The behavior of this function is highly implementation-specific. For example, when used with std::ifstream, some compilers fill the underlying filebuf with data as soon as the file is opened (and readsome() on such compilers reads data, potentially, but not necessarily, the entire file), while other compilers only read from file when an actual input operation is requested (and readsome() issued after file opening never extracts any characters). Likewise, a call to std::cin.readsome() may return all pending unprocessed console input, or may always return zero and extract no characters.
