/// Automatically resizable buffer class based on std::streambuf.
/**
 * The @c basic_streambuf class is derived from @c std::streambuf to associate
 * the streambuf's input and output sequences with one or more character
 * arrays. These character arrays are internal to the @c basic_streambuf
 * object, but direct access to the array elements is provided to permit them
 * to be used efficiently with I/O operations. Characters written to the output
 * sequence of a @c basic_streambuf object are appended to the input sequence
 * of the same object.
 *
 * The @c basic_streambuf class's public interface is intended to permit the
 * following implementation strategies:
 *
 * @li A single contiguous character array, which is reallocated as necessary
 * to accommodate changes in the size of the character sequence. This is the
 * implementation approach currently used in Asio.
 *
 * @li A sequence of one or more character arrays, where each array is of the
 * same size. Additional character array objects are appended to the sequence
 * to accommodate changes in the size of the character sequence.
 *
 * @li A sequence of one or more character arrays of varying sizes. Additional
 * character array objects are appended to the sequence to accommodate changes
 * in the size of the character sequence.
 *
 * The constructor for basic_streambuf accepts a @c size_t argument specifying
 * the maximum of the sum of the sizes of the input sequence and output
 * sequence. During the lifetime of the @c basic_streambuf object, the following
 * invariant holds:
 * @code size() <= max_size()@endcode
 * Any member function that would, if successful, cause the invariant to be
 * violated shall throw an exception of class @c std::length_error.
 *
 * The constructor for @c basic_streambuf takes an Allocator argument. A copy
 * of this argument is used for any memory allocation performed, by the
 * constructor and by all member functions, during the lifetime of each @c
 * basic_streambuf object.
 *
 * @par Examples
 * Writing directly from an streambuf to a socket:
 * @code
 * boost::asio::streambuf b;
 * std::ostream os(&b);
 * os << "Hello, World!\n";
 *
 * // try sending some data in input sequence
 * size_t n = sock.send(b.data());
 *
 * b.consume(n); // sent data is removed from input sequence
 * @endcode
 *
 * Reading from a socket directly into a streambuf:
 * @code
 * boost::asio::streambuf b;
 *
 * // reserve 512 bytes in output sequence
 * boost::asio::streambuf::mutable_buffers_type bufs = b.prepare(512);
 *
 * size_t n = sock.receive(bufs);
 *
 * // received data is "committed" from output sequence to input sequence
 * b.commit(n);
 *
 * std::istream is(&b);
 * std::string s;
 * is >> s;
 * @endcode
