What are you talking about?  What is Cedit.cpp?  What buffers?  What do you mean be "edit the buffers directly"?

Are you asking how to change or edit the text in an edit box?  If so, then you get the window text as a string, make the changes and copy it back to the edit box.

Cedit.cpp is a class of Visual C++4 of Microsoft and this class has buffers and we need to be able to edit from a window

CEdit is a class - not Cedit.cpp.

I told you how to edit the text associated with CEdit - you GetWindowText (which gives you the text associated with the CEdit edit control - you then make changes and SetWindowText to copy it back.

You cannot DIRECTLY get at the buffers - they are internal to the windows control, and the only way windows gives you to get at them is via GetWindowText/SetWindowText.
