Solaris and std::wstring - Help!
Wed Dec 3 13:53:00 GMT 2003
Solaris does not support C99 wide string manipulation.
Building GCC itself detects that lack of support, and disables wide string support.
Note: Solaris does support C++98 wide string manipulation, but the GCC test looks for C99 compliance, which has a few additional functions.
The problem is in detection for (and the missing of) vfwscanf, vswscanf, vwscanf, wcstof and (perhaps) iswblank.
Assuming that this hasn't been fixed in the GCC head, I believe you need to doctor up the acinclude.m4 file and rebuild GCC to get C++ std::wstring support in GCC on Solaris.
