_wcsupr () with german characters

Hi,
I have a string which contains some german characters e.g
'Men'. I am converting it to upper case using wcsupr (). But is
not converted to . There are other characters too. I can use the
_wsetlocale () function before using _wcsupr (). I cannot use the
current machines locale setting. The strings have to be converted to
upper case based on the locale of the target
machine which is a SQL Server. What's the most efficient way of
converting the string to upper case considering the language specific
characters. I tried using the _wsetlocale (LC_CTYPE , L".OCP"); which
uses the OEM code page. This seems to be working. What's the difference
in OEM code page and language specific code page?

Thanks in advance

Ajey

All of the functions you mention are microsoft-specific. Try one
of the microsoft groups.

Hi everyone, Can someone help me please? I am using a form which imports a .csv file's data into a temporary table called tblQuestImport_csvraw.

Not really a C#-specific comment, more general .net observations. 1) A while back I found the need to determine whether or not a particular StringComparer was case-insensitive. The best way I found was to use Reflection to access the private _ignoreCase field, which I'd rather not do. It seems to me that a public readonly property would be helpful. (Better yet, it should probably have a CompareOptions) 2) The CompareInfo.Compare method...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
