    It might be a typographical error in the book, since I cannot find it in the C++ standard. A probable candidate is ios::skipws, which causes leading whitespace to be skipped, where applicable.

If they do, I ask them to find the smallest example that exhibits the problem and send me that. Mostly, they then find the error themselves. "Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    I do not think you need to use it by default; that flag should already have been set.
