This is not very much information. What kind of char array?

Does it contain ASCII-encoded characters in the first place (i.e. is
your program only compatible with ASCII-based platforms (likely, if you
considered using C++/CLI), and there are no non-ASCII characters in your
array)? If so, your char array *is* the byte array you want.

Does it contain non-ASCII characters in some encoding? Well, then you do
you intend to get it to ASCII?

Is it really a wchar_t array containing some wide encoding? Well, the
same problem applies to non-ASCII characters. Aside from that, the
codecvt facet of the locale should be perfectly capable of doing the
