I want to use a string class which does not require any additional DLLs, so that the exe I compile can run on a clean build win95 box simply by copying the exe. Whenever I try to use string, String or CString in C++ it seems to require additional components. When I added mscorlib.dll (.net framework) it was ok. What I need is a string class which does not need .net framework. I also need a registry class and some classes for handling arrays would be nice.
I found a few string classes on the web but who can you trust ?
Main things I need are things like split, join, replace etc etc functionality
Would be nice if my resulting code remained compiler independent but its OK to lock into win32 platforms.
Full points for a solution that gets me bug free string class and a registry class which works without external dlls (kernel, user advapi etc are acceptable)
