30.7.4 Input streams [input.streams]

30.7.4.2 Formatted input functions [istream.formatted]

30.7.4.2.1 Common requirements [istream.formatted.reqmts]

Each formatted input function begins execution by constructing an object of class sentry with the noskipws (second) argument false.
If the sentry object returns true, when converted to a value of type bool, the function endeavors to obtain the requested input.
If an exception is thrown during input then ios​::​badbit is turned on308 in *this's error state.
If (exceptions()&badbit) != 0 then the exception is rethrown.
In any case, the formatted input function destroys the sentry object.
If no exception has been thrown, it returns *this.
This is done without causing an ios​::​failure to be thrown.

30.7.4.2.2 Arithmetic extractors [istream.formatted.arithmetic]

operator>>(unsigned short& val); operator>>(unsigned int& val); operator>>(long& val); operator>>(unsigned long& val); operator>>(long long& val); operator>>(unsigned long long& val); operator>>(float& val); operator>>(double& val); operator>>(long double& val); operator>>(bool& val); operator>>(void*& val);
As in the case of the inserters, these extractors depend on the locale's num_­get<> object to perform parsing the input stream data.
These extractors behave as formatted input functions (as described in [istream.formatted.reqmts]).
After a sentry object is constructed, the conversion occurs as if performed by the following code fragment:
using numget = num_get<charT, istreambuf_iterator<charT, traits>>;
iostate err = iostate::goodbit;
use_facet<numget>(loc).get(*this, 0, *this, err, val);
setstate(err);
In the above fragment, loc stands for the private member of the basic_­ios class.
[Note
:
The first argument provides an object of the istreambuf_­iterator class which is an iterator pointed to an input stream.
It bypasses istreams and uses streambufs directly.
end note
]
Class locale relies on this type as its interface to istream, so that it does not need to depend directly on istream.
operator>>(short& val);
The conversion occurs as if performed by the following code fragment (using the same notation as for the preceding code fragment):
using numget = num_get<charT, istreambuf_iterator<charT, traits>>;
iostate err = ios_base::goodbit;
long lval;
use_facet<numget>(loc).get(*this, 0, *this, err, lval);
if (lval < numeric_limits<short>::min()) {
  err |= ios_base::failbit;
  val = numeric_limits<short>::min();
} else if (numeric_limits<short>::max() < lval) {
  err |= ios_base::failbit;
  val = numeric_limits<short>::max();
}  else
  val = static_cast<short>(lval);
setstate(err);
operator>>(int& val);
The conversion occurs as if performed by the following code fragment (using the same notation as for the preceding code fragment):
using numget = num_get<charT, istreambuf_iterator<charT, traits>>;
iostate err = ios_base::goodbit;
long lval;
use_facet<numget>(loc).get(*this, 0, *this, err, lval);
if (lval < numeric_limits<int>::min()) {
  err |= ios_base::failbit;
  val = numeric_limits<int>::min();
} else if (numeric_limits<int>::max() < lval) {
  err |= ios_base::failbit;
  val = numeric_limits<int>::max();
}  else
  val = static_cast<int>(lval);
setstate(err);

30.7.4.2.3 basic_­istream​::​operator>> [istream.extractors]

basic_istream<charT, traits>& operator>>(basic_istream<charT, traits>& (*pf)(basic_istream<charT, traits>&));
Effects: None.
This extractor does not behave as a formatted input function (as described in [istream.formatted.reqmts]).
Returns: pf(*this).309
basic_istream<charT, traits>& operator>>(basic_ios<charT, traits>& (*pf)(basic_ios<charT, traits>&));
Effects: Calls pf(*this).
This extractor does not behave as a formatted input function (as described in [istream.formatted.reqmts]).
Returns: *this.
basic_istream<charT, traits>& operator>>(ios_base& (*pf)(ios_base&));
Effects: Calls pf(*this).310
This extractor does not behave as a formatted input function (as described in [istream.formatted.reqmts]).
Returns: *this.
template<class charT, class traits> basic_istream<charT, traits>& operator>>(basic_istream<charT, traits>& in, charT* s); template<class traits> basic_istream<char, traits>& operator>>(basic_istream<char, traits>& in, unsigned char* s); template<class traits> basic_istream<char, traits>& operator>>(basic_istream<char, traits>& in, signed char* s);
Effects: Behaves like a formatted input member (as described in [istream.formatted.reqmts]) of in.
After a sentry object is constructed, operator>> extracts characters and stores them into successive locations of an array whose first element is designated by s.
If width() is greater than zero, n is width().
Otherwise n is the number of elements of the largest array of char_­type that can store a terminating charT().
n is the maximum number of characters stored.
Characters are extracted and stored until any of the following occurs:
  • n-1 characters are stored;
  • end of file occurs on the input sequence;
  • letting ct be use_­facet<ctype<charT>>(in.getloc()), ct.is(ct.space, c) is true.
operator>> then stores a null byte (charT()) in the next position, which may be the first position if no characters were extracted.
operator>> then calls width(0).
If the function extracted no characters, it calls setstate(failbit), which may throw ios_­base​::​​failure ([iostate.flags]).
Returns: in.
template<class charT, class traits> basic_istream<charT, traits>& operator>>(basic_istream<charT, traits>& in, charT& c); template<class traits> basic_istream<char, traits>& operator>>(basic_istream<char, traits>& in, unsigned char& c); template<class traits> basic_istream<char, traits>& operator>>(basic_istream<char, traits>& in, signed char& c);
Effects: Behaves like a formatted input member (as described in [istream.formatted.reqmts]) of in.
After a sentry object is constructed a character is extracted from in, if one is available, and stored in c.
Otherwise, the function calls in.setstate(failbit).
Returns: in.
basic_istream<charT, traits>& operator>>(basic_streambuf<charT, traits>* sb);
Effects: Behaves as an unformatted input function.
If sb is null, calls setstate(failbit), which may throw ios_­base​::​failure ([iostate.flags]).
After a sentry object is constructed, extracts characters from *this and inserts them in the output sequence controlled by sb.
Characters are extracted and inserted until any of the following occurs:
  • end-of-file occurs on the input sequence;
  • inserting in the output sequence fails (in which case the character to be inserted is not extracted);
  • an exception occurs (in which case the exception is caught).
If the function inserts no characters, it calls setstate(failbit), which may throw ios_­base​::​​failure ([iostate.flags]).
If it inserted no characters because it caught an exception thrown while extracting characters from *this and failbit is on in exceptions() ([iostate.flags]), then the caught exception is rethrown.
Returns: *this.

See, for example, the function signature dec(ios_­base&).
