Function std.utf.toUTF16z

toUTF16z is a convenience function for toUTFz!(const(wchar)*).

const(wchar)* toUTF16z(C) (
  const(C)[] str
) pure @safe
if (isSomeChar!C);

Encodes string s into UTF-16 and returns the encoded string. toUTF16z is suitable for calling the 'W' functions in the Win32 API that take an LPCWSTR argument.


string str = "Hello, World!";
const(wchar)* p = str.toUTF16z;
writeln(p[str.length]); // '\0'
