If you are converting filenames from Unicode to multi-byte, then you must do this according to the rules of the O/S. However, this can be encapsulated in a single class. Use conditional compilation (e.g #ifdef WINDOWS or #ifdef LINUX) to choose the correct version of the class.
If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack.
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
