c++.stlsoft - Using auto_buffer for a stack-based allocator for std::string

Hi,

   I need a (mostly) stack-based string.
I was wondering if it'd bee possible to use auto_buffer as the 
underlying component of an allocator that can be given to an 
std::string.
This way I can use these string with functions that accept and 
expect on std::string and still reap the benefits of stack access 
when my strings are not too big.

Has anyone done this before?
Does anyone have guidelines as to how to do this?

Thanks,
Adi

I did some work on similar lines when I was researching XSTL, for the

happens). Bit rusty on it now, but it was _possible_; very ugly though.

Have you thought about using stlsoft::basic_static_string?

I'll check out stlsoft::basic_static_string.
