RE: [Patch] Replace deprecated WSAStringToAddressA


This is not the preferred way of doing things and will only work if you're 
American because you only need character codes in the ASCII range 32-126. I 
have a number of comments regarding this post.

1) If the libssh.org API expects C-strings as inputs to its functions, please 
keep it that way. It's one thing to remove an API or make it obsolete, it's 
far worse to change the meaning of buffers from an ANSI (multibyte utf-8) to 
UTF16. Which is why I think the comment from Aris is correct.

2) The sample below is wrong. See [1] on how to do this properly. You have to 
convert from utf8 to utf16 to use a W function.

size_t size = strlen(str);
wchar_t* wArr = new wchar_t[size];
for (size_t i = 0; i < size; ++i)
     wArr[i] = str[i];

and using wArr for str in the function without a cast
