std::format


hi,

is it possible - or better: why hasn't it been in the std - to add
this function:

ofstream os("xy");
int my_int = 0;
double my_double =123.12;
os << std::format("8.3f", my_double) << std::format(".5d", my_int);

know what I mean? Because when you try to write a double in format
"%8.3f" to an ostream it's ridiculous what you have to write (using
ostringstream and such).

Where can I apply for that to be added?

int main(int argc, char** argv) {printf
("%silto%c%cf%cgl%ssic%ccom%c", "ma", 58, 'g', 64, "ba", 46, 10);}

Have a look at boost::format,

WG21 of course, see the comp.std.c++ FAQ for details. The logical place
to add it would be C++ Library Extensions TR2, which has an open call
for
proposals.
