Subject: Re: [Boost-users] Open a filename with a wstring or wchar_t *

I use :

 typedef boost::filesystem::wpath SlmWPath;
 typedef boost::filesystem::wfstream SlmWfstream;
 typedef boost::filesystem::wofstream SlmWOfstream;
 typedef boost::filesystem::wifstream SlmWIfstream;

then you can use wchar, I have not tested with non asci filenames though.
