OemToCharA function

Translates a string from the OEM-defined character set into either an ANSI or a wide-character string.

Warning  Do not use. See Security Considerations.
 

Syntax

BOOL OemToCharA(
  LPCSTR pSrc,
  LPSTR  pDst
);

Parameters

pSrc

Type: LPCSTR

A null-terminated string of characters from the OEM-defined character set.

pDst

Type: LPTSTR

The destination buffer, which receives the translated string. If the OemToChar function is being used as an ANSI function, the string can be translated in place by setting the lpszDst parameter to the same address as the lpszSrc parameter. This cannot be done if OemToChar is being used as a wide-character function.

Return Value

Type: BOOL

The return value is always nonzero except when you pass the same address to lpszSrc and lpszDst in the wide-character version of the function. In this case the function returns zero and GetLastError returns ERROR_INVALID_ADDRESS.
