Chinese and C++
Is there anybody out there who can tell me if it's even possible to get C++ to read Chinese characters from a text file into a multi dimensional array? I know Chinese Windows/DOS can display Chinese characters but I'm not sure why it won't display the ones I'm trying to display...wrong font?
Use a UNICODE Font and a UNICODE way of reading strings. Everything more detailed is dependent on your Compiler/Library.
For strings, use wchar_t instead of char. wchar_t means the unicode set of characters. For printing out a unicode string, use wcout. Basically, everything you need for unicode strings starts with a w (wcout, wcin, wstring, wcerr, etc). The C++ standard also comes with wide string functions.
