I have a stringstream that I'd like to iterate and determine if a substring exists in it.
I know that I could just convert to a string and do std::string::find(), but I was just hoping to avoid the conversion from stringstream to string if possible.
I understand the following won't work because the istream_iterator uses char as its type (not string)
auto itr = std::find (
The C++ standard does not define any
std::[io]?stringstream methods for searching its contents.
Neither can you use
std::istreambuf_iterator together with
std::istreambuf_iterator is an input iterator, but
std::search() requires a forward iterator.
The only effective way to search a string stream is to convert it to a
