Yes, you did. When I was talking about UTF-8 I mean Unicode and not subset. For example, in my case I want to open a file std::ofstream f("سلام-שלום-Peace-Мир.txt") I can't do this on Windows (only) So I open it with nowide::ofstream f("سلام-שלום-Peace-Мир.txt") And it works on Windows as well. The only operating system that does not allow **any** file being opened with std::fstream::open or std::fopen is Windows and this is what the library wants to fix. You can download my code there: It gives you: STL's nowide::ifstream nowide::ofstream nowide::fstream nowide::filebuf STDlib's nowide::fopen nowide::freopen nowide::remove nowide::rename All using UTF-8 strings (as it usually work on all modern operating systems) Artyom
