The skipws() method of stream manipulators in C++ is used to set the skipws format flag for the specified str stream. This flag skips the whitespaces in the input stream before the first non-whitespace character. Syntax:
ios_base& skipws (ios_base& str)
Parameters: This method accepts str as a parameter which is the stream for which the format flag is affected. Return Value: This method returns the stream str with skipws format flag set. Example 1:
// C++ code to demonstrate
// the working of skipws() function
  
#include <iostream>
#include <sstream>
  
using namespace std;
  
int main()
{
  
    // Initializing the character
    char a, b, c;
  
    // Stream input with leading whitespaces
    istringstream iss("        GFG");
  
    // Using skipws()
    iss >> skipws >> a >> b >> c;
  
    cout << "skipws flag: "
         << a << endl
         << b << endl
         << c << endl;
  
    return 0;
}

                    
Output:
skipws flag: G
F
G
Example 2:
// C++ code to demonstrate
// the working of skipws() function
  
#include <iostream>
#include <sstream>
  
using namespace std;
  
int main()
{
  
    // Initializing the character
    char a;
  
    // Stream input with leading whitespaces
    istringstream iss("        G");
  
    // Using skipws()
    iss >> skipws >> a;
  
    cout << "skipws flag: "
         << a << endl;
  
    return 0;
}

                    
Output:
skipws flag: G
