X2a(T const &value):
In this constructor T may be any type that can be inserted into an o[string]stream.
X2a(double value, size_t behind):
Double value is truncated to behind digits behind the decimal dot. If a value doesnt occupy behind digits behind the decimal point, then missing digits are added as 0. For example, a value of 7.1, will be displayed as 7.10 if two digits behind the decimal dot are requested. A value of 7 will be displayed as 7.00.
X2a(double value, size_t width, size_t behind, std::ios::fmtflags
flags = std::ios::right):
The value is displayed over width character positions, extending the amount if the value so requires. The converted value is placed right-aligned into the field of width characters. The copy constructor is available as well.
o bool lastFail():
This member returns true if the last conversion failed (i.e., the objects fail() member returned true and returns false otherwise). This member allows checks on the success of the extraction/conversion using anonymous A2x objects. The member also returns true when no conversions have as yet been performed.
Note that this member is a thread-unsafe static member: in a multithreaded program locks may be required to ensure that the proper conversion result is inspected.
All members of std::ostringstream are available, as FBB::X2a inherits from this class. In particular ostringstream::str() can be used to obtain the contents of an X2a objects text buffer.
o operator std::ostream &operator<<(std::ostream &ostr, X2a const &x2a):
This conversion operator inserts the textual representation of the x2a parameter value into the provided ostream.
o operator std::string const() const:
this conversion operator returns the information stored inside the FBB::X2a object. The standard overloaded assignment operator is available as well.
string is(X2a(5)); // initializes is with 5 string ds(X2a(5.25)); // initializes ds with 5.25
cout << X2a(7.0 / 3, 4) << endl; // display a value using 4 digits behind the // decimal dot. cout << X2a(7.0 / 3, 8, 4) << endl; // display a value over 8 positions, right // adjusted, 4 digits behind the decimal dot. cout << X2a(7.0 / 3, 8, 4, std::ios::left) << endl; // display a value over 8 positions, left // adjusted, 4 digits behind the decimal dot.
