I am porting programs that uses strstream.h and strfile.h in the unix environment. However, they are not available in VC++. Need help to know where I can find replacements for these header files. Thanks!

strstream.h is available as 'strstrea.h' (8.3!)

Also there is a strstream file (no .h)   There is no strfile.h.  I don't think that is part of the standard library.  What does it contain?

After taking a look into 'strfile.h', i think th VC++ equivalent is 'io.h' - the functionality is almost identical, my version of this file is a part of 'libio.h'...

Use the header with no 'h' and put the 'using' directive as in:

#include <STRSTREAM>
using namespace std;

   ostrstream osMsg;
   osMsg << "This is it." << ends;
   cout << osMsg.str() << endl;
   osMsg.rdbuf()->freeze( 0 );
