As you use
, you have access to the CW2A ATL macro, assuming that you work with _UNICODE defined, here it is:
std::string STDStr( CW2A( theCStr.GetString() ) );
which will convert to "system encoding on the user's machine" (thanks Nemanja
] comment !), if you want to specify the code page, UTF-8 encoded for example as the original, here it is:
std::string STDStr( CW2A( theCStr.GetString(), CP_UTF8 ) );
I'm an independent Software Developer living in the Alpes Maritimes (aka French Riviera).
Even if in the past I have worked regularily with Fortran, Pascal, Basic (not necessarily Visual), and much more esoteric languages (who knows Prolog, Lotus 123 macros ?), even if I still work from time to time with C#, Java or some "interpreted languages", I'm more specialized in C++.
I work on MFC since the very first version, I enjoy working on Visual Studio 2010, its C++0x features, STL, MFC, boost, WTL ...
