I am really going round the bend with Cstrings, and char*. I'm trying to lose the char*'s. But when I do a statement like Cstring* strTest("test!!"); I get an error error C2059: syntax error : 'string' I have this constructor in my Cstring class: inline Cstring::Cstring(tchar* c) { assign(c); } So why the error? all looks very straight forward to me!! Please save me!

This line:
Cstring* strTest("test!!");

Declares a Cstring pointer and tries to initialize it with "test!!". This probably isn't what you want. You probably want either

Cstring strTest("test!!");


Cstring * strTest = new Cstring("test!!");
