#4485: boost.filesysten v3 breaks boost:::iostream::mapped_file
 Reporter: ttan@… | Owner:
     Type: Patches | Status: new
Milestone: Boost 1.44.0 | Component: None
  Version: Boost Development Trunk | Severity: Problem
 Keywords: filesysten v3 iostream mapped_file |
 boost:::iostream::mapped_file has been design so that when passing file
 path to the constructor or open(), it only accepts 3 types: std::string,
 boost::filesystem::path, boost::filesystem::wpath.

 due to the late update to boost::filesystem v3, boost::filesystem::path is
 no longer templated, and wpath is gone.
 and as Windows uses UTF16, when a path is converted from utf16 to a
 certain ANSI/OEM code page(CP), causes information loss, for example,
 "Apress ©" in unicode would be converted to "Apress ?" in CP936, where
 code point 0x00a9(©) is lost, though it's a legal character in file name.

 it amounts to that support for std::wstring in
 boost:::iostream::mapped_file is gone.

 a patch is needed to remove the dependence on boost.filesystem v2, and
 revert to the support of std::wstring, which can be get from
 path.wstring() in boost::filesystem v3.
