Dumping content of object to a file/screen

Posted on 2002-04-17

I have a class called 'EquSol' like

class EquSol  
{
private:
     int          m_CurrentOffset;
     EquVar*          m_Result;
     EquEquation**     m_Equations;
}


and I am using

EquSol  Obj;

I would like to dump the content of 'Obj' to a file so I am
thinking of adding a public method to class 'EquSol', that will
take input as object and dump its content to screen/file.

Any idea how to do this?

What about

class EquSol; //foward decl.

class DumpEquSol {

 DumpEquSol ( ofstream* pos) : m_pos ( pos) {}; // ctor for file dumping
 DumpEquSol ( ) : m_pos ( 0) {}; // ctor for screendumping

 void operator << ( const EquSol&);

private:

 ofstream* m_pos;
};

class EquSol  
{
friend class DumpEquSol;
private:
    int          m_CurrentOffset;
    EquVar*          m_Result;
    EquEquation**     m_Equations;
}

void DumpEquSol::operator << ( const EquSol& r) {

 if ( !m_pos) { // dump to screen

   cout << "m_CurrentOffset" << r.m_CurrentOffset;

  //...
 } else {

  *m_pos << "m_CurrentOffset" << r.m_CurrentOffset;

 }
}

And use it like

DumpEquSol dumper;
EquSol obj;

dumper << obj;

You can use solution like this:
class EquSol  
{
   void Dump(ostream& out);
private:
    int          m_CurrentOffset;
    EquVar*          m_Result;
    EquEquation**     m_Equations;
}

void EquSol::Dump(ofstream& out)
{
   out << "m_CurrentOffset" << m_CurrentOffset;
  ....
}

main()
{
  EquSol obj;

obj.Dump(cout);
obj.Dump(file);

}

just a thought

public:
void dump(ostream& out, int nlevel)
{
    switch(nlevel)
    {
        case 1: out << m_CurrentOffset;
                ...
                break;  // dump our own data
       
        case 2: out << m_CurrentOffset;
                m_Result->dump(out, 1);
                break;  // ask aggregates to dump their data

        case 3: out << m_CurrentOffset;
                m_Result->dump(out, 3);
                break;  // full dump
    };
}
