Is there a conversion available to make a string variable a const char* in order to pass it to functions that require that?

#include <string>

std::string mr_string;

mr_string.c_str(); // null-terminated

mr_string.data(); // not null-terminated



Hope that helps!

Hi

You can write your own string class with automatic conversion

=>
CString::operator const char*(void) const
{
return( str.c_str());
};

Have fun
