UNICODE question

Hi Experts,

LPTSTR maps to LPSTR or LPWSTR according to project settings.

Is there an equivalent for the standard library?  Is there sometihng like std::string_t which maps to std::string and std::wstring?

I know CString maps to CStringA and CStringW, but I want to stay away from MFC in a few projects....

No, but you can easily roll your own stuff:

typedef std::basic_string<TCHAR> tstring;

Open in new window

and then 'tstring' acts/behaves the same way.
