Formatting references in the ADS Abstract Service (1211 words)
The reference formatting capability allows the user to specify a format in which the reference is returned.
The format is a string similar to a format in a printf statement.
The '\' character is used to specify special characters, as in a printf format (\n is a newline, \t is a tab, \\ is a backslash).
The Boost Format library (2738 words)
When you call format(s), where s is the format-string, it constructs an object, which parses the format string and look for all directives in it and prepares internal structures for the next step.
All in all, the format class translates a format-string (with eventually printf-like directives) into operations on an internal stream, and finally returns the result of the formatting, as a string, or directly into an output stream.
When format detects that one of these rules is not satisfied, it raises a corresponding exception, so that the mistakes don't go unnoticed and unhandled.
