I am using the #define for _CRT_SECURE_CPP _OVERLOAD_STAND ARD_NAMES in my
Windows MFC App, (Visual Studio 2005) and yet continue to receive compiler
warnings about various CRT functions.

It was my impression that setting the #define of
_CRT_SECURE_CPP _OVERLOAD_STAND ARD_NAMES to 1 would automatically adjust the
old CRT function calls I had in my code to accommodate the new size-checking
format. However, when I step through the code in debug, it appears to step
into the older unsafe CRT function.

My stdafx.h file has the following defined at the very bottom:

// The following #defines ensure that safe CRT functions are automatically

And when I display the value at runtime, it shows the correct value:


So why, when I compile, do I still get the compiler warnings, and why, when
I step through a CRT function, is it still stepping into the old function?

It was my impression that setting the #define of
_CRT_SECURE_CP P_OVERLOAD_STAN DARD_NAMES to 1 would automatically adjust the
old CRT function calls I had in my code to accommodate the new size-checking

It'll do it for those situations where the compiler knows the size to
use. Where it can't find the size (where the parameter is just a
pointer rather than a known array size) it still uses the old version.

Hi, Mark,
Sorry for delaying this response, since I am consulting the product team on
this issue. The process may need a long time and I appreciate your patience.

You are right. Per my test, such code:
char szBuf[10];
strcpy(szBuf, "test");

could not work fine as described in the article:
Secure Template Overloads

The old version function will also be invoked.

Could you please mail me a response so that I can timely update you when I
get a response from the product team?
My email address is changliw_at_mic rosoft_dot_com.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to let me
Have a good day!

I have a question about text rendering I'm hoping someone here can answer. Is there a way of doing linguistically correct rendering of Unicode strings in Python? In simple cases like Latin or Japanese I can just print the string and see the correct results. However, I don't know how to get Python to do the right thing for writing systems which require contextual processing. For example, let's say I create this Unicode string in Arabic: ...

Given the code:- r = sscanf (s, "%lf", x); What is the correct output if the string s is simply "-" ? If "-" is considered the beginning of a number, that has been cut-short then the correct output is that r = EOF. If it is taken to be a letter in the stream, then the output should be r = 0, as far as I can see. My compiler gives EOF.
