Oh, yes, you are right !

It must be the 'Additions to <fstream>' thing, that construct an
ifstream from a filesystem::path/wpath. Actually I do not even have a
wchar_t * in my program, I use a wpath ! :)

I guess Bjarne was right, the boost documentation is a challenge for a
newcomer. :) And I like to think of myself as a tough guy ...

Thank you,
