Iostream examples

In this section you ll see examples that use what you ve learned in this chapter. Although many tools exist to manipulate bytes (stream editors such as sed and awk from UNIX are perhaps the most well known, but a text editor also fits this category), they generally have some limitations. Both sed and awk can be slow and can only handle lines in a forward sequence, and text editors usually require human interaction, or at least learning a proprietary macro language. The programs you write with iostreams have none of these limitations: they re fast, portable, and flexible.
