I'm doing an "enter your name" for a high score list. I was wondering how you delete the last character from an ostringstream for when the player presses backspace.

There probably are more efficient ways to do it, but here's something:

std::ostringstream oss("hello world");
std::string tmp( oss.str(), 0, oss.str().length()-1 );
oss.str(tmp);



Alternatively you could just stick a backspace character in, and implement your own stream buffer so that backspaces do eat the previous character in the buffer.
