Unicode question


In my Ice-file I defined a function that returns a string. In the documentation is mentioned that the Slice built-in string type is able to work with Unicode. Through the Client-Side-C++ mapping a std::string is formed. Works this std::string also with Unicode? If not, what can I do to use Unicode in my application?

    Strings in Ice/C++ are treated as UTF-8; utility functions are provided for converting from std::wstring to std::string.

    Your program will need to include <IceUtil/Unicode.h>, which defines two functions:
    namespace IceUtil
    std::string wstringToString(const std::wstring&);
    std::wstring stringToWstring(const std::string&);
