OemToCharBuff info  Overview  Group

The OemToCharBuff function translates a specified number of characters in a string from the OEM-defined character set into either an ANSI or a wide-character string. (OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer.)

BOOL OemToCharBuff(

    LPCSTR lpszSrc,

// pointer to string to translate

    LPTSTR lpszDst,

// pointer to buffer for translated string

    DWORD cchDstLength 

// size of buffer



Points to a buffer containing one or more characters from the OEM-defined character set.
Points to the buffer for the translated string. If the OemToCharBuff 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 the OemToCharBuff function is being used as a wide-character function.
Specifies the number of characters to translate in the buffer identified by the lpszSrc parameter.

Return Values

The return value is always nonzero.
