Personally I would use simply static_cast<cont char*>(in) if doing that.
It is a direct conversion from char to char* and last time I saw any
benchmarks it was cheaper to copy a pointer a reference (and it will
be copied by value when passed to the operator<< function anyway.) The
assembly code shows five instructions for the reference version and
Alternatively, something like
template <int N>
inline std::ostream& operator <<(quote_type1 o, const char (&in)[N])
return o.ostr->write(in, N-1); // don't write nul terminator
You know the size of the array, why discard that info and require a strlen call?
The const overloads aren't needed, char[N] will match const char[N]
rather than the default specialisation, so you only need one overload
for quote_type1 and one for escape_type1.
