Hi Jonathan,

Thanks for helping me out!!

I've tried your proposition below and it does the trick, even with
actual encryption going on:

out << "test" << std::endl; //this works
//out << "test" << "\n"; //this does not

One remark: he code above works on my vc71 debug setup (cl called
through bjam v2 build v10), but if I read your earlier mail correctly it
should be the other way around and hang as well?

One question: is this behaviour intended?

I will try some more stuff (with some other containers , the copy/adapt
etc) and source/sink - apart from encryption I am in need of a audio

I'll let you know :) - It's great stuff!

Cheers, Dirk

(Sorry the code didn't compile, forgot to match the filter names).

(And what do you mean by 'red herring' ? :)

Here's a cleaned up example that reproduces the bug (when endl is
replaces by
"\n"). It seems the filter is a red herring.


#include <iostream>
#include <sstream>
#include <boost/iostreams/filtering_stream.hpp>

int main()
    boost::iostreams::filtering_ostream out;
    std::ostringstream os;
    out << "test" << std::endl;
    //out << "test" << "\n";
    std::cout << os.str();
