    Question String -> unsigned char array conversion....

    How could you convert a string into a unsigned char array?

    could I use:

    Code:
    string ReadString;
    usigned char ReadChar[100];
    
    getline(File1,ReadString);
    sprintf(ReadChar,"%i",ReadString);
    but what would I use instead of "%i"
    ???

    unsigned char* ptr = (unsigned char*)ReadString.c_str();

    will work if you don't need to modify the unsigned char*. If you need to modify it then you'll have to allocated storage a copy the contents into an array.
