ifstream and ofstream.. save/read from memory?
Posted on 2004-08-12
i got a third party library and one of the function takes an ifstream or ofstream for saving and reading data to/from a file. Consider that i can't modify that libray.. is there something i can do so i can get it to write to (or read from) a memory buffer instead of a physical file?
I want to do this because calling those function calls is the only way for me to retrieve the whole data stored in that object.. but writing/reading from disk slows down the process a lot!
