// Use this macro to generate an inline BSTR from a wide string.
// This is about 6 times faster than using the SysAllocXxx functions to
// allocate a BSTR and helps with keeping heap fragmentation down.

//  DoBstrStuff(StackBstr(L"This is my BSTR"));
// Where DoBstrStuff is:
//  HRESULT DoBstrStuff(BSTR bstr) { ... }
#define StackBstr(str) \

// If you need a named BSTR variable that's based on a fixed string
// (e.g. if the BSTR is used inside a loop or more than one place),
// use StackBstrVar to declare a variable.
// Example:
//   StackBstrVar(L"my_property", myprop);
//   for (int i = 0; i < objects.length(); ++i)
//     ProcessValue(objects[i].GetProp(myprop));  // GetProp accepts BSTR
