You would have to copy the MFC *.cpp implementation file and the header file.

Most of CString will work in Linux/Unix, however you'll have some problems with the CString::Format function.

You'll find the implementation in the STRCORE.CPP file:
MICROSOFT VISUAL STUDIO\VC98\MFC\SRC\STRCORE.CPP

No. Use STL strings instead, they are portable. See http://www.msoe.edu/eecs/cese/resources/stl/string.htm

The class declaration is in the AFX.H file.

Well, but I strongly doubt that using it on Linux is covered by the MFC license :o)

There is a replacement class for CString (called CStr) on www.codeguru.com that will work on UNIX/Linux

I was answering the question from a technical view point, and not a legal view point.
But you're correct.
