Class template std::money_get encapsulates the rules for parsing monetary values from character streams. The standard I/O manipulator std::get_money uses the std::money_get facet of the I/O stream's locale.

Inheritance diagram

If a std::money_get specialization is not guaranteed to be provided by the standard library (see below), the behaviors of its get() and do_get() are not guaranteed as specified.


[edit] Specializations

The standard library is guaranteed to provide the following specializations (they are required to be implemented by any locale object):

Defined in header <locale>
std::money_get<char> parses narrow string representations of monetary values
std::money_get<wchar_t> parses wide string representations of monetary values

In addition, the standard library is also guaranteed to provide every specialization that satisfies the following type requirements:

[edit] Example

#include <iomanip>
#include <iostream>
#include <iterator>
#include <locale>
#include <sstream>
int main()
    std::string str = "$1.11 $2.22 $3.33";
    std::cout << std::fixed << std::setprecision(2);
    std::cout << '\"' << str << "\" parsed with the I/O manipulator: ";
    std::istringstream s1(str);
    long double val;
    while (s1 >> std::get_money(val))
        std::cout << val / 100 << ' ';
    std::cout << '\n';
    str = "USD  1,234.56";
    std::cout << '\"' << str << "\" parsed with the facet directly: ";
    std::istringstream s2(str);
    auto& f = std::use_facet<std::money_get<char>>(s2.getloc());
    std::ios_base::iostate err;
    std::istreambuf_iterator<char> beg(s2), end;
    f.get(beg, end, true, s2, err, val);
    std::cout << val / 100 << '\n';


"$1.11 $2.22 $3.33" parsed with the I/O manipulator: 1.11 2.22 3.33
"USD  1,234.56" parsed with the facet directly: 1234.56

[edit] Defect reports

The following behavior-changing defect reports were applied retroactively to previously published C++ standards.

DR Applied to Behavior as published Correct behavior
LWG 427 C++98 money_get was guaranteed to accept any CharT that
meets the requirements for a character on which
any of the iostream components can be instantiated
only guarantees to accept char,
wchar_t and other implementation-
defined character types
LWG 2392 C++98 only character type CharT could be
guaranteed to be accepted by money_get
can guarantee to accept implementation-
defined character container types
