ANSI-only strings in memory? avoiding Unicode conversion to save memory?
How does one save on memory by avoiding string conversion to UniCode?
Is there a way to do that?
For example, if one is reading from a large text file, operating on the
contents, then writing to a second textfile (using the API file i/o
functions), is there a way to keep everything ANSI so as to half the memory
Would one use arrays of bytes instead of strings? Is that possible in VB?
Thanks for any suggestions or any URLs that treat on the topic.
