Unbuffered Streams

Unbuffered Streams

The standard stream object cerr and its matching wide-character version, wcerr, are unbuffered. This means that they are automatically flushed after each operation; they do not buffer data.

Note that because these streams are unbuffered, using the endl manipulator in this case is never needed:

 # include using std::cerr;if (failed){   cerr
