L in C

Discussion in 'C Programming' started by |-|e|_|_ B0Ý, Aug 5, 2008.

  1. I am a novice C learner. And I don't have much advanced tutorial/
    documentations on it too. yesterday i tried to write a windows console
    timer program in C and i struck with some ...very unclear solutions....
    (should say). First i was trying to write something on the title bar
    of the consol window using following code:
    LPWSTR sWTitle;
    sWTitle = "my Title";
    SetWindowsTitle(sWTitle);
    Above code gave me some unknown characters in my console title bar.
    Then I changed sWrite value with {L"my Title";} which performed
    excatly as i needed. I added L unknowingly. Can you tell me what is
    this L for? Is there any other `prefix/type caster/whatever`(i don't
    know what it is called) in C? And one more... I used threads in my
    program and i want it to be paused on some keyboard events without
    interrupting another running threads. Is there a way to pause running
    thread in C? Thanking you all for the reply in advance.
