I was not able to reproduce this problem using VC6 SP5. I'm assuming the
exact testcase is:
#include <iostream>
#include <boost/tuple.hpp>
int main() {
boost::tuple<int, int, int> t = boost::tuple<int, int, int>(3, 9, 27);
std::cout << "1: " << boost::get<1>(t) << std::endl;; // output's 27!
// likewise for get<2> and get<3> all output 27
return 0;
}
Any other information you could give us would be helpful.
