Manages the minimum number of characters to generate on certain output operations and the maximum number of characters to generate on certain output operations.
|new_width||-||new field width setting|
 Return value
The field width before the call to the function
Some I/O functions call width(0) before returning, see std::setw (this results in this field having effect on the next I/O function only, and not on any subsequent I/O)
The exact effects this modifier has on the input and output vary between the individual I/O functions and are described at each
operator>> overload page individually.
