I don't know what happened to my yesterdays mail:
I received only the attachments, but the boost archive has
Here is the textual part again, just in case:

Done. Changed files are in the attached zip file (ublas.zip).
I partially tested them: I tried to compile test1.
I used g++ version 3.0.3 with -DUSE_GCC.
I think that the problems that I encountered are not caused by
type name changes, because they also apear with your original
files. (Looking back, I think that I never before tried to compile all
With test11.cpp there were no problems.
Both in test12.cpp and in test13.cpp, when USE_BOUNDED_ARRAY
and USE_VECTOR_OF_VECTOR are defined, `bad_alloc' exception
Combination USE_MATRIX and USE_STD_VECTOR can not be
compiled. I attached compete error message for `float'
(file std_vec_error); for `double' and `complex<>' error messages
are similar. In short, problem is conversion from `const float* const' to
`float*' in g++'s header stl_iterator.h, which is triggered from
Other combinations of #defines in test12 and test13 can be compiled
PS. I will not be in Zagreb for next few days, but when I return, I
will try other tests.
