KString class, a non MFC string class.

Introduction

We needed a customized and non MFC String class, so I wrote the KString class. Any suggestions and refinements are welcome.

Here are the KString methods (Visual C++ 2003):

class KString
{
public:
// - Constructions:
    KString(void);                    // - Default constructor
    KString(const LPCTSTR lpszStr);      // - Constructor
    KString(const KString &sStr);        // - Copy constructor

// - Destruction
    ~KString(void);                   // - Destructor

// - Operators Overloading
    // - Operator = overloading for KString
    KString& operator =(const KString &sStr);
    // - Operator = overloading for string
    KString& operator =(LPCTSTR lpszStr);
    // - Operator = overloading for int
    KString& operator =(const int iNum);
    // - Operator = overloading for double
    KString& operator =(const double fNum);
    // - Operator + overloading : KString + KString
    KString  operator +(const KString &sStr);
    // - Operator + overloading : KString + LPCTSTR
    KString  operator +(LPCTSTR lpszStr);
    // - Operator + overloading : KString + int
    KString  operator +(int iNum);
    // - Operator + overloading : KString + double
    KString  operator +(double fNum);
    // - Operator +=overloading for KString
    KString& operator+=(const KString &sStr);
    // - Operator +=overloading for LPCTSTR
    KString& operator+=(LPCTSTR lpszStr);

// - Operations
    // - Operator < overloading
    BOOL operator <(const KString &sStr);
    // - Operator <= overloading
    BOOL operator <=(const KString &sStr);
    // - Operator > overloading
    BOOL operator >(const KString &sStr);
    // - Operator >= overloading
    BOOL operator >=(const KString &sStr);
    // - Operator ==overloading for KString
    BOOL operator==(const KString &sStr);
    // - Operator ==overloading for LPCTSTR
    BOOL operator==(LPCTSTR sStr);
    // - Operator !=overloading for KString
    BOOL operator!=(const KString &sStr);
    // - Operator !=overloading for LPCTSTR
    BOOL operator!=(LPCTSTR sStr);
    // - Operator prefix  -- overloading
    KString& operator--();
    // - Operator postfix -- overloading
    KString  operator--(int);

    // - LPTSTR type cast
    operator LPTSTR(){return m_sString;}

    // - Returns TCHAR in specified position
    TCHAR       GetAt(int iPos);
    // - Finds first position of specified TCHAR
    int         Find(TCHAR ch);
    // - Finds first position of specified KString
    int         Find(const KString &sStr);
    // - Finds first position of specified string
    int         Find(LPCTSTR lpszStr);
    // - Replace an old TCHAR with a new TCHAR
    int         Replace(TCHAR cOld, TCHAR cNew);
    // - Replace an old string with a new string
    int         Replace(LPCTSTR sOld, LPCTSTR sNew);
    // - Replace an old KString with a new KString
    int         Replace(const KString &sOld, const KString &sNew);
    // - Returns iCount TCHARs from iStart
    KString     Mid(int iStart, int iCount);
    // - Returns TCHARs from nStart till the end
    KString     Mid(int iStart);
    // - Returns iCount left TCHARs
    KString     Left(int iCount);
    // - Returns iCount right TCHARs
    KString     Right(int iCount);
    // - Removes a TCHAR in specified position
    BOOL        Remove(int iPos);
    // - Removes TCHARs from nStart to nEnd
    int         Remove(int iStart, int iEnd);
    // - Removes all ch TCHAR
    int         Remove(TCHAR ch);
    // - Removes all specified string
    BOOL        Remove(const KString &sStr);
    // - Trims left specified TCHAR
    KString&    TrimLeft(TCHAR ch = ' ');
    // - Trims right specified TCHAR
    KString&    TrimRight(TCHAR ch = ' ');
    // - Trims left and right specified TCHAR
    KString&    Trim(TCHAR ch = ' ');
    // - Inserts a string in specified position
    KString&    Insert(const KString &sStr, int iPos);
    // - Appends a string
    KString&    Append(const KString &sStr){return *this += sStr;};
    KString&    MakeUpper();       // - Converts to upper case
    KString&    MakeLower();       // - Converts to lower case
    KString&    MakeReverse();     // - Reverses the string
    KString     GetUpper();        // - Returns uppercase of string
    KString     GetLower();        // - Returns lowercase of string
    KString     GetReverse();      // - Returns reverse of string
    void        Empty();           // - Clears the string

    // - Return length of the string
    int        GetLength(){return m_iLength;}
    // - Return size of the string
    int        GetSize(){return m_iLength*sizeof(TCHAR);}
    // - return TRUE if the string is empty
    BOOL       IsEmpty(){return m_iLength ? FALSE : TRUE;}

    // - Creates a sized buffer
    LPTSTR     GetBuffer(int iBuffSize);
    // - Frees extra space
    void       FreeExtra();

    // - Format string
    void       Format(LPCTSTR pszCharSet, ...);

    // - Converts the string to integer and returns it
    int        ToInteger(){return _tstoi(m_sString);}
    // - Converts the string to long and returns it
    long       ToLong(){return _tstol(m_sString);}
    // - Converts the string to float and returns it
    float      ToFloat(){return (float)_tstof(m_sString);}\
    // - Converts the string to double and returns it
    double     ToDouble(){return _tstof(m_sString);}

private:// - Data Members
    LPTSTR     m_sString;   // - Holds the string data
    int        m_iLength;   // - Holds the string length
};

Here is some example of how to use KString:

KString   str("World");
// str2 => HI WORLD!
KString   str2 = str.Insert("Hi ", 0).Append("!").GetUpper();

if(str2 == str.GetUpper())
    printf("Yes");

str.Replace("Hi", "Hello");// str => Hello World!
str2 = --str + ".";// str2 => Hello World.

str = 123;
int i = str.ToInteger();

str = 56.345;
float f = str.ToFloat();

GetWindowsDirectory(str.GetBuffer(256), 256);
str.FreeExtra();
