    Creating a C++ std::string literal

    Hello,

    Is there a way to create a string literal from the stl string class? I have a function that takes a stl string as argument, but using a quoted string as in: func("string"); creates a basic C string literal. So is there something similar for the stl string.

    If your parameter is a std::string it should be converted to a std::string by the compiler. You could also do something like:
    Code:
    funct(std::string("string"));

    Post the warnings and maybe I can help. But I do have the feeling that the word const will be contained in your warnings.

    Thanks, but the warnings are now gone. The confusion came from the fact that the warning referred to an object<std::basic_string<char> >*, where the pointer value was the central part. I just prematurely latched on to the std::basic_string part, without reason.
