Classes

Class Description
basic_filebuf The template class describes a stream buffer that controls the transmission of elements of type Elem, whose character traits are determined by the class Tr, to and from a sequence of elements stored in an external file.
basic_fstream The template class describes an object that controls insertion and extraction of elements and encoded objects using a stream buffer of class basic_filebuf<Elem, Tr>, with elements of type Elem, whose character traits are determined by the class Tr.
basic_ifstream The template class describes an object that controls extraction of elements and encoded objects from a stream buffer of class basic_filebuf<Elem, Tr>, with elements of type Elem, whose character traits are determined by the class Tr.
basic_ofstream The template class describes an object that controls insertion of elements and encoded objects into a stream buffer of class basic_filebuf<Elem, Tr>, with elements of type Elem, whose character traits are determined by the class Tr.
