string to const char


I was wondering if anyone can help me.Im trying to declare a string i.e.

string “Lemmy”;

and then pass that into your average opengl text printing method which accepts const char

obviously you cnt do it directly, but does anyone know of a conversion method ??

If you’re talking about strings in C++, you can use the c_str method to return a null terminated const char *.

Cheers bob, ill check that out.
