This has not been my experience. char[] is usually a char[] in my code, a
character buffer with a fixed size, as I tried to show with the swprintf
example. (Sometimes it's a short array of characters, typically 4, but this
is rare.)

String literals typically decay to char const* the moment they are used.

Of course my experience may be unusual.
