> +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?
