/** Return a string representing the contents of a buffer sequence.

    This function returns a string representing an entire buffer
    sequence. Nulls and unprintable characters in the buffer
    sequence are inserted to the resulting string as-is. No
    character conversions are performed.

    @param buffers The buffer sequence to convert

    @par Example

    This function writes a buffer sequence converted to a string
    to `std::cout`.

    template<class ConstBufferSequence>
    void print(ConstBufferSequence const& buffers)
        std::cout << buffers_to_string(buffers) << std::endl;
template<class ConstBufferSequence>
buffers_to_string(ConstBufferSequence const& buffers)
        "ConstBufferSequence type requirements not met");
    std::string result;
    for(auto const buffer : buffers_range_ref(buffers))
        result.append(static_cast<char const*>(
  , buffer.size());
    return result;
