> +1.  There are many reasons to prefer streaming implementations.  It is also possible to write high-level APIs with relatively simple interfaces that use streaming behind the scenes.  The fact that this is not always done is not a good argument against providing robust streaming APIs.  In fact, it should be considered a challenge to improve the state of the art.

What advantage? Streaming IO is a pain in the ****. I never got what people like at this stuff - Even in my windows days I always used the much better memory mapped file IO. Is streaming IO some kind of C/C++ sickness like macros and templates?
