I really need some simply code to convert an AnsiString to a *char...

Im Stuck, I've been writing this little program for windows and I'm at a loss - If you can tell me in PLAIN ENGLISH with some good source code, how to make this conversion I'll give you a copy of this program when it's done, I know the the class Ansistring has a method called c_str that gives back the AnsiString as Null terminated c-string but I don't know how to use methods in Classes!!, whats the Syntax !! help...

RE: I really need some simply code to convert an AnsiString to a *char...


I admit, I'm dense, I'm not certain what you mean. I use .c-str() alot in classes. I haven't had a problem with it. For example,

ofstream ProdFile;
ProdFile.open("AFile.Txt", ios::out);
AnsiString thingy = "something";
ProdFile << thingy.c_str() << endl; // streams can't use AnsiString

Are you trying to create a class that passes a string? Are you having problems with methods in general? Are you looking for the specific syntax for c_str? Let us (me) know some more specifics and we'll (I'll) see what can be done.
