How to use std::stringstre am create flexible debug stream?

1 New Member

I am writing a program for the robot that runs as a daemon on a linux machine. Since debug output cannot be seen on stdout, I want to create an iostream to handle all the output messages. However, I do not want to use a file or output to the clog since I want to achieve the debug message remotely through TCP connection. I've already built a TCP server for transmitting data, all i need is an "endless" stringstream.

I tried to code this way:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. stringstream debug;
  2. debug<<"Debug message"<<endl;
  4. //create another thread that might output debug message
  5. MyThread *th = new MyThread(debug);
  6. th->start();
  8. //for now output debug message to stdout whenever possible
  9. while(debug)
  10. {
  11.   char c;
  12.   debug.get(c);
  13.   if(debug) cout<<c;
  14. }
The problem is, after reading the first line of debug message ("Debug message"), stringstream thinks that we reached an end which is not what I want. I want that somehow the stringstream becomes "endless", and blocks when trying to read from empty buffer.

I will be really grateful if you can help me on this problem. Thank you very much!

I got this reply in my previous post a month ago: May I know, how can I automatically create the folder if it doesn't exist ? In previous reply, it said: ------------------------- std::stringstream stream; stream << "C:\\Output\\Output.txt" << std::flush; std::ofstream SaveFile(stream.str().c_str()); The "C:\Output" must already exist?

Hi all. I am trying to use std::stringstream to validate input from a file. The strategy is to read a line from the file into a std::string and feed this std::string to an object which breaks it up into individual elements. The elements can be strings, integers or floating point numbers. In the object where I break the line into elements I use a std::stringstream object to do the actual check:
