good habits - TCHAR, unicode, etc.
Since I'm very new to all this, what would be useful for me?
Currently, as pointed out in another thread, the VS C++ compiler has UNICODE as the default.
I'm struggling with the whole mindset of thinking on pairs of bytes vs. single bytes.
The programs I'm writing are mostly for myself but occasionally they might be used by just a few people via other forums.
Should I go through the learning curve to fumble with TCHAR? Or, should I simply learn for a bit using CHAR for everything (turn UNICODE compile option OFF)?
Any other tips you have regarding the best way for me to proceed?
