High Performance Unicode Text File I/O Routines for C++

I am an independent Windows software developer working from home. I work mostly in C++, although I use C# for the code-behind pages on my website, and the more I use it the more I like it. Application areas include cleaning up digital audio and PC remote control. I have been programming for nearly 30 years and so must surely qualify as an old fart.
