Boolean to String in C++

In C++, a boolean value (true/false) can be converted to a string by using the stringstream class. This class provides a way to store a string representation of a value. To convert a boolean to a string, you can create a stringstream object and insert the boolean value into it. The stringstream will then store the string representation of the boolean value, which can be retrieved using the str() method.

Example snippet of code:


It is a standard library class that can be used to convert values to strings. The std::ostringstream class is a stream that writes to a string. To convert a boolean value to a string, we can create an instance of std::ostringstream, write the boolean value to it using the operator<<, and finally extract the string using the str() method.



We can also use the to_string function in C++ and later to convert booleans to strings:



The std::to_string function will convert a boolean to a string representation of either "1" or "0". It is because booleans in C++ are represented as integers, with true being equal to 1 and false being equal to 0.

When using std::to_string, the resulting string will not be "true" or "false". Instead, it will be either "1" or "0". If you need a string representation of "true" or "false", you can use the stringstream method mentioned earlier.

We can also convert a boolean to a string using the 'if' statement:

In all the above examples, the boolean value b is converted to the string str, which is either "true" or "false".
