(2.5) blender uses deprecated 'strstream' STL class, causes warnings with gcc
Closed, InvalidPublicPATCH


I am using blender 2.5 from SVN (revision 22463) and I get a compilation warning:

"This file includes at least one deprecated or antiquated header. Please consider using one of the 32 headers found in section of the ++ standard. Examples include substituting the <X> header for the <X.h> header for C++ includes, or <iostream> instead of the deprecated header iostream.h>. To disable this warning use -Wno-deprecated."

I am using gcc 4. The problem seems to be that source/gameengine/VideoTexture/Exception.cpp includes <strstream> and uses 'ostrstream' objects which are considered obsolete.

Attached there is a patch that use 'ostringstream' objects, removing a lot of potential problems related to the obsolete STL 'strstream' class.

Hope to be useful.

p.s.: there aren't <strstream> declarations in the source code other than the one from Exception.cpp.
