Not yet. How do I go about doing this?

I have not had chance to look at it yet. I am also interested in
logging/tracing libraries and have used my indentation code in a basic trace
facility of my own.

My code does not allow for you to pass a std::ostream & to the constructor,
using something like:

   // will *not* work
   boost::indentor< std::ostream > ind( os );

In order to get this to work, I would need to add a constructor to indentor
that will accept a reference to a std::ostream, or std::basic_stream and
pass that to the parent class.

It would also need a stream wrapper class, one that takes a stream reference
and provides a stream-like interface to it.

Then, you could do something like:

      boost::ostream_wrapper< std::ostream >
> ind( os ); // not supported yet

Is there a set of classes of the form
available in boost?
