If so, way to go. If you suggesting: boost::filesystem::fstream f(L"שלום.txt",std::ios_base::out); Then this is not what I'm talking about. I'm not talking about "Wide" path -- this is exectly what I was writing "nowide" make a library compatible with C/C++ **standard** functions like std::fstream::open(char const *,...) or std::fopen(char const *,...) but be fully Unicode enabled (utf-8) as they are on all-other operating systems without all "wide" api. Is somebody interested? Artyom
