    If youwant to produce a string, then you could use "stringstream" from the <strstream> include-file.

    Just output your components to the stringstream, then use the stringstream as an input to a string.

    Yes, but if you search for stringstream in the forum, I'm pretty sure you can find the example I posted a few days ago, and your searching is just as easy as mine.

    Note that stringstreams are in <sstream>.
