_bstr_t::wchar_t*, _bstr_t::char*

Microsoft Specific

Returns the BSTR characters as a narrow or wide character array.

operator const wchar_t*( ) const throw( ); 
operator wchar_t*( ) const throw( ); 
operator const char*( ) const; 
operator char*( ) const;

These operators can be used to extract the character data that is encapsulated by the BSTR object. Assigning a new value to the returned pointer does not modify the original BSTR data.
