6.6.1 Output Library Specifics

Output library objects expose collections of functions concerned with text formatting. The collections target distinct output devices (such, one output library object may expose one functions collection targetting the standard output device, one targetting the standard error device, yet another one targetting some TCP output stream). The targetted devices are all implicit for their respective functions collection. The collections are uniform in interface (some function in one collection will have a close correspondent in another), functions in one collection share name prefix.
