Casting an array of unsigned char to wchar_t pointer

4 New Member
I have an array of bytes that has data loaded into it. I want to get a wchar_t pointer to the data loaded as unicode characters so I can use unicode string functions. I'm not sure how to do it.

unsigned char n[1000];
// fill array with numeric and unicode text data
wchar_t *test;
test = &n[100]; // this doesn't work
test = &(wchar_t)n[100]; // this doesn't work
test = &((wchar_t)n[100]); // this doesn't work
test = (wchar_t)&n[100]; // this doesn't work

What will work?

try this one

t=(wchar_t *) n;

I'm having a problem understanding why the code in this little program I've got is behaving the way it does... if anyone can explain it, I'd be grateful: #include <iostream> using namespace std; //This function takes an unsigned char (one byte on my machine) //and prints it in binary notation

Howdy, Put briefly, I have an array of chars, which I would like to access in pairs of bytes via casting the array to an array of shorts. I'm trying to be as elegant as possible. Below is a program with a failed attempt. Hopefully it will help clarify the issue :). Thanks!

Hi, I've this question: suppose we have two differently typed pointers: struct foo *foo; char **array; Becase one can always legally cast any pointer to (void *), and becase (void *) is assignable to any pointer type, is it ever necessary to cast when assigning one pointer type to another? I.e. since foo = (void *) array;

I am interfacing with a third party API (written in C, if that matters) that has an "event handler" function with the following definition: void event_handler(int event_code, unsigned long user_data); The function takes an event code along with the user data but does not act on or change the user data. In my application, I want to pass a pointer as the user data. This pointer is to an array allocated with new, say, as follows:
