Name of the file associated with sys.std*

Hi,

It might be a trivial question, but I seem to be lost.

Is there a way to get names of the files associated with stdin/out/
err if those are redirected to the files at the shell command-line?

Thanks,
Henryk

I doubt there is a portable way. On most linux-based systems,
os.readlink("/proc/self/fd/1")
and
os.readlink("/proc/self/fd/2")
will work.

I have a situation where I have a bunch of strings stuffed into a vector. I need to run through each of them and locate approximate (or complete) matches to them in another file (which also contains a string on each line). If I am searching for CAD I need to locate even something that looks like ACAD or CADINC (along with the exact match for CAD of course). I ran into some examples using istream_iterator and have an idea how to

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
