I'm getting ready to sit down and start writing a new app, and I'm wondering about C++'s support of Unicode, more specifically UTF-8. I've read about problems with wstring, things such as wofstream throwing away the first byte, etc. Does anyone have any experience with this, and if so, what do you think the best solution would be?

You may want to check out Glibmm's ustring class. :)

There's always QString from QtCore.

Unfortunately QT isn't an option, and I'm not a fan of the GPL/LGPL, so I guess I'll have to roll my own.

Are there any resources, or any particular books, everyone would recommend for doing this? I would like to keep the string class as close to std::string as possible.

Thanks.
