Subject: [Boost-users] [Q] better 'typedef'
From: V S P (toreason_at_[hidden])

I have read somewhere that boost provides
a better typedef.
Something that allows to use the 'underlying class' but it is not a
I want to define
typedef std::wstring cvarchar_t
to use for ODBC/Unicode db access (on win32)
and then specialize some templates for this type
that would behave differently then wstring
I cannot remember what that mechanism was called.
Also, sorry, for mixing this question in: is
UTF-8 a more 'standard' encoding if I want to interface from my
C++/boost programs to ODBC and to Boost.Python on Windows and FreeBSD
(I have problems figuring out how to support the difference between
on windows/wstring and Unix UTF-32 wstring ... while the unicode ODBC
drivers are all 2-byte strings)
thanks in advance
