NAME

FBB::OFoldStreambuf - Folds long lines written to ostream

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

#include <bobcat/ofoldstreambuf>
Linking option: -lbobcat

DESCRIPTION

FBB::OFoldStreambuf is a specialization of FBB::OFilterStreambuf folding long lines written to an std::ostream object. The OFoldStreambuf writes the (folded) lines to a second ostream (the destination stream which is either used by or opened by the OFoldStreambuf object).

Internally the OFoldStreambuf defines its actions using a little finite state automation distinguishing three states (INDENT, WS and NON_WS) and three character categories (\n, other white space characters (space), and non-space characters). The nine combinations resulting from these two sets are discussed below.

OFoldStreambuf objects will never fold lines in the middle of series of non-blank characters (called a ‘word\(cq below) but will always break a line at a white space character. The resulting lines will always appear to the right of a configurable left margin and to the left of a configurable right margin. There is a somewhat pathological exception to this: if a word is too long to fit in between the margins then the word will exceed the right hand margin.

The indentation used for the left margins is configurable to either blanks (the default) or tabs. When tabs are used the width of a tab character is configurable, using a default of 8 positions in the destination stream.

What follows is a description of the Finite State Automaton (FSA) defining what happens when various character types appear at its three states. The phrase ‘... is written\(cq means that the described information is written to the ostream used or opened by the OFoldStreambuf object. OFoldStreambuf\(cqs initial state is INDENT:

NAMESPACE

FBB
All constructors, members, operators and manipulators, mentioned in this man-page, are defined in the namespace FBB.

INHERITS FROM

FBB::OFilterStreambuf

ENUMERATION

The enumeration TabsOrBlanks is used to select tabs or blanks when writing the indentation. The default is blanks. When tabs are selected the display width of tabs characters can be configured as well (using the default of 8 positions for each tab-character). The enumeration has two values:
o BLANKS:
The default, indicating that the left margin is specified and written as a number of blanks;
o TABS:
Indicating that the left margin is specified and written as a number of tab-characters.

The enumeration TrailingBlanks is used to configure the OFoldStreambuf object with respect to any trailing blanks that may appear on the final line. These trailing blanks can appear on the final line it it is not properly terminated with a newline character but instead ends in white space. By default these white space characters are ignored, but they may be kept as well. The enumeration has two values:
o IGNORE_TRAILING_BLANKS:
This indicates that trailing blanks appearing at the final line if it is not terminated by a newline should not be written to the destination std::ostream. This is the default used by OFoldStreambuf objects.
o KEEP_TRAILING_BLANKS:
This indicates that trailing blanks at the final line if it is not terminated by a newline should be written to the destination std::ostream

CONSTRUCTORS

o OFoldStreambuf(size_t leftIndent = 0, size_t rightMargin = 80, TabsOrBlanks tob = BLANKS, TrailingBlanks tb = IGNORE_TRAILING_BLANKS):
This constructor initializes an OFoldStreambuf object but does not associate it with a destination stream. It can also be used as the default constructor.
o OFoldStreambuf(char const *fname, size_t leftIndent = 0, size_t rightMargin = 80, TabsOrBlanks tob = BLANKS, TrailingBlanks tb = IGNORE_TRAILING_BLANKS):
This constructor initializes an OFoldStreambuf object and opens (using std::ios::out) the destination stream using the name specified as its fname argument.
o OFoldStreambuf(std::ostream &stream, size_t leftIndent = 0, size_t rightMargin = 80, TabsOrBlanks tob = BLANKS, TrailingBlanks tb = IGNORE_TRAILING_BLANKS):
This constructor initializes an OFoldStreambuf object and uses as its destination stream the std::ostream stream.

The destructor writes any buffered information to the destination stream and will then flush the destination stream.

MEMBER FUNCTIONS

All members of FBB::OFilterStreambuf, in particular its out() and open() members are available, as FBB::OFoldStreambuf inherits from this class.
o void setMargins(size_t leftMargin, size_t rightMargin):
This member can be used to modify the left- and right folding margins. Note that the left margin may also be modified using the FBB::lm and FBB::mlm manipulators.
o void setTrailingBlanks(TrailingBlanks tb):
This member can be used to modify the currently used TrailingBlanks parameter.
o void useBlanks():
This member can be used to select blanks to be used when inserting left margins.
o void useTabs(size_t tabWidth = 8):
This member can be used to select tab-characters to be used when inserting left margins. The second parameter is used to specify the display width of a tab-character.

STATIC MEMBER FUNCTIONS

o size_t leftMargin(std::ostreambuf const *buffer):
This member returns the current left margin setting of the OFoldStreambuf object passed to it as its argument. The member defines a std::streambuf parameter which is down cast to an OFoldStreambuf and an FBB::Exception exception is thrown if that cast fails.
o size_t rightMargin(std::ostreambuf const *buffer):
This member returns the current right margin setting of the OFoldStreambuf object passed to it as its argument. The member\(cqs parameter is down cast in the same way as leftMargin()\(cqs argument: an FBB::Exception exception is thrown if that cast fails.

PROTECTED MEMBER FUNCTION

The member listed in this section implements the tasks of the comparably named virtual function in the class\(cqs private interface. This separates the redefinable interface from the user-interface. The class OFoldStreambuf can, in accordance with Liskov\(cqs Substitution Principle, be used as a std:streambuf; but it also offers a facility for classes deriving from OFoldStreambuf. This facility is listed here.
o int pSync():
The contents of the OFoldStreambuf\(cqs internal buffer is flushed.

EXAMPLE

#include <iostream> #include <ostream> #include <string> #include <bobcat/ofoldstreambuf> using namespace std; using namespace FBB; int main() { OFoldStreambuf fb(cout, 4, 40); ostream out(&fb);

out << lm(4);

string line; while (getline(cin, line)) out << line << \(cq\n\(cq; return 0; }
