as i wrote already i tried the port with msvc6. i got the dir_it
itself running fine but implementing the attributes was too difficult
for me because of many details. eg. m$ uses FILETIME instead of
std::time_t and you need a complicated extra function to convert it.
unfortunatly i have only access to msvc6 since it was included in one
of my c++-books. i tried to compile the lib with the free borland
compiler and cygwin and both accepted the posix version. are there
more free compilers for win32?
why is a win32 version needed at all? msvc understands posix (as its
documentation says). so i think it would be good if the lib is only
adopted to the various defects of this compiler.
