#2904 new Bugs

boost::date_time io fails simple back-and-forth test

Reported by: mgl@… Owned by: az_sw_dude
Milestone: Boost 1.39.0 Component: date_time
Version: Boost 1.38.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:


set up a stringstream and use boost::io facets to specify a time format. Sent a time_t from a known time through it to get a string (converting to posix_time along the way), then back through to to get a time, and back through to get a string. The string results should always match, and the time_t results always match. Both tests fail.

stringstream>> operator does not seem to modify the supplied instance of class boost::posix_time.

Severity: ShowstopperProblem

Downgraded priority after I realized that a work-around was to have two streams, since one problem appears to be that loading the output facet erases the input facet. This behaviour still seems pretty strange. I would think that a detailed investigation is merited. At least the documentation should reflect it, shouldn't it?
