Subject: [boost] [iostreams] input_sequence() questions
From: Rob Riggs (rob_at_[hidden])

I am attempting to adapt a windowed mmap reader, one which manages its
mapping window using iterators, to a boost::iostreams direct source. I
wrote this for reading large files via mmap on 32-bit platforms.

The documentation shows that input_sequence() returns a pair of char
pointers, not iterators. Is that really true or am I misreading the docs?

And it also shows that the input_sequence pointers are non-const. Why
is that required for sources?
