Strings are a very interesting variable.  They come in all shapes and sizes.  Depending on your compiler, they may be “CString”, “QString” or the c-type strings.

The Skinny

CString is a class in Microsoft Visual Studio C++.  These types of strings may be appended, concatenated, even tokenized.  In the near future, I will investigate what some of the more common functions of this type of string do or mean.

QString is a class in Qt C++.  These types of strings have similar features of the CString class of VS.  I will interweave this classes functions with that of the CString class to point out the differences and similarities.

And to round out the discussion, the c-type string functions will be compared to, when applicable and possible, the other two types of strings.

Stay tuned, this could be interesting.
