[iostreams]: typos in comments and documentation, part 1

Reported by: Steven Samuel Cole <steven.samuel.cole@…> Owned by: danieljames
Milestone: Boost 1.50.0 Component: iostreams
Version: Boost Development Trunk Severity: Cosmetic
Keywords: typo documentation comment Cc:


First boost bug report, so please bear with me...

There are a number of typos in iostreams source code comments and documentation. I took the liberty to fix them in my local copy of the development trunk (, rev 76927, synced some time earlier today) and attach a patch file to this ticket.

Weird: It's often the same typo, e.g. paramters instead of parameters or unfilitered instead of unfiltered; maybe a copy & paste issue or a typo in some template.

Some of the changed line are rather long which can make it hard to spot the change. Maybe something like diff --color helps; otherwise, someone please advise if I can do anything to supply my changes in a more digestible format.

  • Milestone changed from To Be Determined to Boost 1.50.0
  • Owner changed from turkanis to danieljames
  • Status changed from new to assigned

A subversion diff is ideal. The trac patch viewer highlights which characters have changed so it's pretty easy to read online. I'll check in the documentation changes first to get them into 1.49. But leave the code comments for 1.50 (comment changes are obviously safe, but sometimes merges get messed up, especially with subversion).
