Using strstream for 'incore' binary I/O

Can I use strstream functions for incode I/O, i.e. writing to memory just as if it were binary input/output to a file?

You can use it to do incode input and output but there is no way to make it behave like a binary store, i.e.:

strstream s;
s << 123;
const char * c = s.str (); // c will have "123" and not a binary rep.
The only way to do what you want is to write your own class that mimics strstream and writes data as binary.
