Subject: [Boost-users] Calling date_time time_input_facet directly
From: Jeffery Cavallaro (jcavalla_at_[hidden])

I have to parse a leading timestamp in a bunch of records, and I would like
to avoid having to copy each record into a stringstream just to parser the
timestamp. Does anyone know how to call the date_time time_input_facet
directly? I did something like the following:

char buffer[N];

typedef boost::date_time::time_input_facet<boost::posix_time::ptime, char,
char *> TimeFacet;

TimeFacet *f = new TimeFacet;
boost::posix_time::ptime t;
f->get(buffer, buffer + size, ???, t);

But I don't know what to pass for the 3rd arg, which is an ios_base &. I
tried an ios instance and a stringstream instance, but I couldn't get
anything to work - the compiler can't seem to match the call.
