The ostringstream object is very powerful. It provides excellent type
saftey, and you never have to worry about having sufficient storage
allocated to contain what you are creating. It's only drawback is that
there is quite a bit of overhead, but this is insignificant when using
it in a limited sense. Herb Sutter has a very good discussion of the
comparison of sprintf, snprintf, ostreams in "Exceptional C++ Style",
Items 2 and 3.
