Poco

class FileIOS

Library: Foundation
Package: Streams
Header: Poco/FileStream.h

Description

The base class for FileInputStream and FileOutputStream.

This class is needed to ensure the correct initialization order of the stream buffer and base classes.

Files are always opened in binary mode, a text mode with CR-LF translation is not supported. Thus, the file is always opened as if the std::ios::binary flag was specified. Use an InputLineEndingConverter or OutputLineEndingConverter if you require CR-LF translation.

On Windows platforms, UTF-8 encoded Unicode paths are correctly handled.

Inheritance

Direct Base Classes: std::ios

All Base Classes: std::ios

Known Derived Classes: FileOutputStream, FileInputStream, FileStream

Member Summary

Member Functions: close, open, rdbuf

Constructors

FileIOS

FileIOS(
    std::ios::openmode defaultMode
);

Creates the basic stream.

Destructor

~FileIOS

~FileIOS();

Destroys the stream.

Member Functions

close

void close();

Closes the file stream.

If, for an output stream, the close operation fails (because the contents of the stream buffer cannot synced back to the filesystem), the bad bit is set in the stream state.

open

void open(
    const std::string & path,
    std::ios::openmode mode
);

Opens the file specified by path, using the given mode.

Throws a FileException (or a similar exception) if the file does not exist or is not accessible for other reasons and a new file cannot be created.

rdbuf

FileStreamBuf * rdbuf();

Returns a pointer to the underlying streambuf.

Variables

_buf protected

FileStreamBuf _buf;

_defaultMode protected

std::ios::openmode _defaultMode;
