After using .seekp(0) on ostringstream object (attempting to reset the
object to start fresh creating a new string) text written to the object is
not written to the string.

Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2001-09-03 10:53:39 UTC
<sstream> is quite a new header in libstdc++ (added in April 2000, so e.g.
libstdc++ 2.95.x does not have it at all) and is incomplete.
As g++ 3.0 has a completely new implementation of this anyway, I'm just
attaching a quick hack which IMHO should work (you can apply the patch
in /usr/include/g++-3/ to test it out).

Comment 4 Jakub Jelinek 2001-09-06 16:04:54 UTC
The fix is in 2.96-98.

Comment 5 Benjamin Kosnik 2004-10-01 15:30:53 UTC
Fixed in gcc-3.2, gcc-3.3, gcc-3.4.
