I am having an MFC Dialog class called CDataFilesDialog
inheriting from CDialog
I have a global object of this dialog named dlg;
I am doing a dlg.DoModal() from a WMCOMMAND message handled by wndproc of my win32 application. I am trying to mix MFC and WIn32
Under Windows, I try to open file which name contains apostrophe or some letters in language other than English. In these cases fopen or CreateFile (from W32 library) fail to open it. How should I do that task? Wide character type, wfopen or defining UNICODE don't help. The functions say the file doesn't exist.
Well, maybe. I read the name of file from another text file which is windows media player list (.wpl). E.g. I can't open file named "Baby,_I’m_Not_Sure_If_This_Is_Love.mp3" but this "05 - Cold Hearts.mp3" can be opened. There may be issue with encoding characters in the list but how it is possible that some files can be opened and others cannot from the same list. Of course, all files are playable by WMP.
Afterwards you must still check for entities as noted in my above post. Even when the WPL file does not use entities for non-ASCII characters it uses them for the reserved characters (quot, amp, apos, lt, and gt).
Definitely, it helped at least in half a problem. The rest lays in XML entities like &_amp_; (without underscore). I think I should treat them manually.
Generally, mbstowcs won't help. I had to use win32 function where I can define more encoding standards.
I just created a file with that name and I was able to open it with another application. As I said before, I suspect the issue is something else. Are you sure that your path is correct when you try to open the file?
Write a C
Program to find the survivor in a "7 up" game.
In the game, a group of people stand in a circle,and start counting from1in a clockwise direction.
The person who has to say "7" goes out, and the person next to him starts counting from1 again.
This goes on until only one person remains, and he is survivor. Your goal is,
given the size of the group find out the place(Index) in which a person has to stand for him to become the survivor
But note that you won't get an answer for this kind of request. This is not a code writing service. Try it yourself. If you then get stuck at some point, show what you have tried so far (code snippets), describe the problem, and you might get valuable help.
We do not do your HomeWork.
HomeWork is not set to test your skills at begging other people to do your work, it is set to make you think and to help your teacher to check your understanding of the courses you have taken and also the problems you have at applying them.
Any failure of you will help your teacher spot your weaknesses and set remedial actions.
So, give it a try, reread your lessons and start working. If you are stuck on a specific problem, show your code and explain this exact problem, we might help.
As programmer, your job is to create algorithms that solve specific problems and you can't rely on someone else to eternally do it for you, so there is a time where you will have to learn how to. And the sooner, the better.
When you just ask for the solution, it is like trying to learn to drive a car by having someone else training.
Creating an algorithm is basically finding the maths and make necessary adaptation to fit your actual problem.
