DESCRIPTIONFBB::IFdStream objects may be used to extract information from a device whose file descriptor is available.
File descriptors are not defined within the context of C++, but they can be used on operating systems that support the concept. Realize that using file descriptors introduces operating system dependencies.
Note that sockets can be used as file descriptors.
All constructors, members, operators and manipulators, mentioned in this man-page, are defined in the namespace FBB.
IFdStream(int fd, size_t n = 1):
The constructor initializes the object to read from descriptor fd, using a buffer of size n, by default having size 1. The copy constructor is not available.
MEMBER FUNCTIONSAll members of std::istream are available, as FBB::IFdStream inherits from this class. There are no additional members.
EXAMPLESee the clientsocket(3bobcat) man-page for an example showing how to use IFdStream.

BUGSThe IFdStream object uses a IFdStreamBuf for its std::streambuf. This buffer is associated with the file descriptor passed to IFdStream's constructor. When the IFdStream object goes out of scope the device (file, socket, etc.) to which the file descriptor that was passed to IFdStream's constructor is not closed.
