I can share the code, where I had the problem, but it is not what I  
would call a small example, but it's also not that big.

It is in an older version of my TraceTool.

In the method SubjectList::toString() the data from the list of  
subjects is stored in to a string buffer, that is later sent to a  
terminal session.

I'm currently updating the coding style of the whole code to match the  
Genode coding standard, and fix some big bugs.

As I think a full c++ string implementation is too mouch for my small  
problem, I have written a small string builder class, that stores the  
data in a Genode::String and addet the methods to format the data there.

Bast regards
