I try to make my code independent of char size
by using the _T() macro for my constants.

This way, when unicode is defined, characters are taken as 16 bit values,
otherwise, the compiler uses 8 bit values.

Most of the output on the GUI can be covered this way.

I work a lot with microcontrollers, where most of the type I handle are not
"compiler optimal" but have a pre-defined width.

My code is full of "uint8" "int8" "uint16" "int16" "uint32" "int32" and "uint64" "int64"

then I usually #include "ProjectTypes.h" where those symbols are typedefed. I hardly
ever handle strings, except for quick and dirty debug strings. Those stay 8 bit wide.

that's for the microcontroller code and for the PC code interfacing with shared structures between PC and microcontroller.

Actually, I like to pass const CString& around as function parameters (in windows, anyway.

I never deal with CString like objects in my microcontroller code.
Instead, I might have something like this:


#ifdef _TRACE_THIGNY<br />
char temp[40];<br />
sprintf(temp,"x=%d. y=%d. z=%d", (int)x, (int)y, (int)z);<br />
SendMsgString(temp);<br />
#endif
