wcstok function in VS Code takes 2 arguments only, so when I try to compile something like this: wchar_t *pch = wcstok(sentences[i], L" ,", &pt);, I get "too many arguments to function 'wcstok'" error. 

Is it possible to change the definition of wcstok function from _CRTIMP wchar_t* __cdecl __MINGW_NOTHROW wcstok(wchar_t*, const wchar_t*) to wchar_t *wcstok(wchar_t *restrict ws1, const wchar_t *restrict ws2, wchar_t **restrict ptr)?

I think it depends on the libraries you're using. Online GDB works with the code you desire.

Are you working on Linux or Windows?

You should be able to set the desired C++ version. On Linux, you probably use a GNU compiler gcc or g++.

Check this thread for Visual Code C++ setting: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/62100553/how-do-i-use-c20-in-vscode

Good luck!
