memmap.cpp makes assumptions about character width that will not be true in
the specific case where UNICODE is defined. For example, the declaration
assumes that strings will be narrow but
CreateFile is called. CreateFile is a macro that translates into either
CreateFileA or CreateFileW depending on the _UNICODE/UNICODE macro. If
_UNICODE is define the code will not compile. You should explicity call
Ansi versions of Windows api's where narrow character streams are intended.
A better solution for cases such as memmap.cpp would be to parameterize the
character type and provide both Ansi and Unicode implementations. Try
readonly_mapped_file::open with a simplified chinese path, for example.
