    typename Elem,
    typename Traits,
    typename Allocator>
const_buffers_1 buffer(
    const std::basic_string< Elem, Traits, Allocator > & data,
    std::size_t max_size_in_bytes);
Return Value

A const_buffers_1 value equivalent to:

    min(data.size() * sizeof(Elem), max_size_in_bytes));

The buffer is invalidated by any non-const operation called on the given string object.
