boost::interprocess::managed_mapped_file filename

Boost - Users mailing list



Unfortunately wmanaged_mapped_file constructors use char instead of wchar for the filename. This causes big problems on windows where %appdata% and %localappdata% include the user name which may include Unicode characters that after conversion result in the windows ‘A’ methods failing to find the referenced file.

I don’t know of any work around except using Unicode filenames.


Does anyone know of a way around this.

Are there any plans of making wmanaged_mapped_file use wchar for the filenames?
