Only if you want to...
One can easily prevent buffer overruns using the standard C/C++ libraries. Those are just API's that enforce it, so you don't have too.
I want to move over to using the strsafe functions. They are far superior to the woefully crap strn*** functions.
The only query I have is the availability on different compilers. Is there a working implementation of the strsafe functions for Dev C++?
StrSafe function support:
Dev C++/Windows gcc: ???
Borland C++: ???
Everyone should read this:
what about buffer overrun?
