Russ | It has been our experience that the overhead to setup a string stream for | output can be quite high, at least in some implementations. Please report this is as a performance-related deficiency to the vendor. Even more, /please/ do not discourage people from using features just because some vendors have not yet given priority to performance. Doing so causes the language we can depend on to shrink as vendors ignore the parts of the standard they do not "like" and think people should not use. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
