Subject: [boost] [filesystem]Extracting path as string from wpath
From: Johan Torp (johan.torp_at_[hidden])

How do convert a boost::filesystem::wpath to a known encoding in the native
filesystem's path representation?

Specifically I want to convert a boost::filesystem::wpath to a third party
string (CFString from Carbon). In order to do that I must know the encoding
of wpath.string() or wpath.external_file_string() on Mac, which is
"implementation defined".

Interfacing boost::filesystem::wpath with 3rd party APIs seems like common
