    If it's a null terminated char string, you do nothing. If it's a std::string, then use the c_str() method.

    PCHAR is just a typedef for "char *".

    I can't find any reference to this PCHAR that isn't Delphi Pascal. Do you just mean pointer to char, or how have you defined PCHAR?

    Hi
    This is my codde
    iResultCompare=ldap_compare_s(ld,strDN.c_str,vAttT ypeFromFile_m[iCntAtt].c_str(),vAllAttValFromFile_m[iCntAtt][iCntVal].c_str());

    and error is

    error C2664: 'ldap_compare_s' : cannot convert parameter 2 from 'const char *(void) const' to 'const char *'
    There is no context in which this conversion is possible

    Questions that concern understanding of compiler messages are NOT very basic... they are not basic at all.
    All problems in computer science can be solved by another level of indirection,
    except for the problem of too many layers of indirection.
