Hi guys, I just got dumped something at work that I'm totally unprepared for, namely developing a file driver that evaluates user mode file operations and communicates with some legacy systems. I've made decent progress so far but I had two big questions that I can't find definitive answers for:
I need to do a bit of work with UNICODE_STRING in the kernel, and while I knew I wouldn't be able to use the STL I was surprised to find that this is basically the sum total of Windows kernel string libraries. Am I somehow missing something in the Windows kernel docs, or is there a very popular open source library that everyone uses for working with strings in the kernel? I just need to do basic stuff with UNICODE_STRING like searching for substrings, tokenizing, startswith/endswith and maybe a bit of regex.
We can add web service gateways to our legacy systems, is there an easy way to call a web service from inside the kernel? Secure would be preferred but plain old HTTP would be fine for now.
Any pointers would be helpful, and thanks much!
