You question says how to convert to char *, but the error is the conversion
to wchar_t *. They are quite different.


A PString is always UTF-8 (8 bits per character) and wchar_t is 16 bits
(possibly more) per character. A CString in MFC is sometimes 8 bit sometimes
16 bit (UNICODE) depending on compiler options. Which makes coding tricky.


So, if your code is guaranteed to always be using UNICODE CString just go
other.AsUCS2() in your == operator. You can also look at the class
PWideString for more.

CString::Compare(other); }
i need to convert other object content to wchar_t * but when run this code
it have below error in VC++ 2005 .
