     Hi Dave,
     As I said in my first email on this, I have a work-round using
     dos2unix. It just caught me by suprise when I downloaded the .zip from
     yahoo files and found that I needed to do this.
     I have since instralled infozip on my Solaris box so I won't
     personally need a .tgz.
     All I was suggesting was that if something is uploaded to boost files
     area that is line ending sensitive then a .tgz would be useful. Just
     as the main boost download web page provides both .zip and tar.gz.
     BTW I tried updating my build to the latest versions in cvs and got
     syntax error at EOF
     warning: unknown rule $(gGENERATOR_FUNCTION($(target_type)))
     so I have reverted to the .zip file version.

>No, it's liberal.

Two countries seperated by a common language :-). Here in the U.K. I walk on the
pavement because thats where the cars aren't allowed :-).
