why is it so elephanting difficult to format a string into a buffer in standard C++?


What does that mean exactly? Both 'format' and in general why would you think that something would make it easy.

As I recall as to what I think you are referring in the cases in the past if I had a specific fixed need to put/get values into a buffer then I just wrote a class that did it appropriately. It would have get/set methods that would do the correct thing for the buffer.

Then there were a couple of management methods that set the buffer up, extracted it, etc.

Similar but simpler than the way XML/Json libraries work. And long ago I created at least one implementation that did things similar too those with multiple types and I did it in C++.
