Re: [ROOT] Different behaviour (i.e. Crash) of TString on Linux and Windows

Hi Nick,

Thanks for the reply.
I am already using root 4.00.02.
I have tested serveral root versions and the first one with which it 
does not appear is 3.04.02, which was compiled for Visual C++ 6 and not 
7. unfortunately 3.04.02 has some other nasty problems...

I know that "W.Data()" works.

Nevertheless, since in the following function is defined:
ostream& operator<<(ostream& str, const TString& s);
also cout<<W<<endl; should work as expected from Linux.

The problem is, at the moment I am trying to port 8 MB of source code 
based on ROOT from Linux to Windows. And really unfortunately I am 
relaying heavily on cout<<W<<endl; to work ... ;-((
