virtual int sync()
If a put area exists (e.g. the file was opened for writing), calls overflow() to write all pending output to the file, then flushes the file as if by calling std::fflush.
If a get area exists (e.g. the file was opened for reading), the effect is implementation-defined. Typical implementation may empty out the get area and move the current file position back by the corresponding number of bytes.
 Return value
0 in case of success, -1 in case of failure.
sync() or its equivalent is implicitly called by close(), seekoff(), and seekpos() and explicitly called by std::basic_streambuf::pubsync()
