std::wbuffer_convert<Codecvt,Elem,Tr>::rdbuf - std::wbuffer_convert<Codecvt,Elem,Tr>::rdbuf


Defined in header <locale>
std::streambuf* rdbuf() const; (1)
std::streambuf* rdbuf( std::streambuf* bytebuf ); (2)

1) returns the pointer to the underlying byte stream
2) replaces the associated byte stream with bytebuf .

Return value

1) the current underlying byte stream
2) the previous byte stream
