fprintf error

I'm trying to write the value of curCommand into the file pointed to by m_file.
The type of curCommand is String.

When I run the program using the line:  fprintf ( m_file, "%s\n", curCommand ) ;
I get in the file garbage instead of the string in curCommand.

When I compile the program using the line:  fprintf ( m_file, "%s\n", (char*)curCommand ) ;
I get the error below:

error C2440: 'type cast' : cannot convert from 'class std::basic_string<char,struct std::char_traits<char>,class std::allocator<char> >' to 'char *'

How can I print the data stored in the String argument ? note that in the debug winow I see that curCommand has the correct value.

Thanks.

After looking for 2 days, I found the solution: curCommand.c_str()
It was in http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Cplusplus/Q_20164790.html

I will ask for a refund.
