Thanks, I will correct it.

Not really. It is not that easy, for wchar_t does not have a standard
interpretation: it is locale-dependent. As explained in Unicode:

The width of wchar_t is compiler-specific and can be as small as 8 bits.
Consequently, programs that need to be portable across any C or C++
compiler should not use wchar_t for storing Unicode text. The wchar_t type
is intended for storing compiler-defined wide characters, which may be
Unicode characters in some compilers.
