Irrelevant of what std::string is set to, I permanently get 32 as the size, why is this and why does the size and length methods both ignore the null byte, giving the same result even if there isn't one? Similarly, do I take it std::string manages the null byte itself as I never appear to have any problems with it not being null terminated?
