Standard C++ does not require any std::basic_fstream ctor which takes a
wchar_t const *, and such a ctor is neither available in VC++ 6, 7, or
7.1. However, all these implementations do have an undocumented ctor
accepting a FILE*, so if you really need it, you can use _tfopen( ) (or
_wfopen( ) for wide characters only) to gain a FILE*, and pass it to the
ctor of std::basic_[i/o]fstream. But you have to remember that this is
non-standard and non-portable, and works only for VC++ Standard C++
