I'd like to derivate STO ostream class. I have problem in doing that coz there is no default ctor for this STL class. I am using VC 5.0 .

Hmmm... I dont know who wrote your iostream headers (Microsloth?) but mine (g++ under Linux) certainly have default ctors. Indeed thats the standard. Have you read your headers carefully?

You shouldn't try to derive from ostream.  The correct method is to derive from the streambuf and write new overloads for overflow, underflow, etc..
