How to convert string to const unsigned char* ?

P: 14

I just want to know if there is a way of converting a string variable into a const unsigned char pointer. Alternatively, I expect a blabla() function as the following:

string str = "Hello";
const unsigned char* ptr = blabla(str);

  1. string str = "Hello";
  2. (const unsigned char *)str.c_str();
But note it this pointer will become invalid the next time str is altered.
