Right now Phoenix has been tested on:

    5)Borland 5.5.1

Phoenix as a Spirit sub-project is very new. It has not been ported to MSVC
yet. However, it was implemented with MSVC-6 in mind. The code is very
straight forward and clean and uses the same techniques found in the
implementation of Spirit. Raghav Satish has just successfully ported Spirit
V1.3 to MSVC-6. Right now, Phoenix for MSVC is high in his priority list.

AFAIK, LL does not compile on Borland nor are there any plans to support
MSVC-6. FC++ does not compile on Borland nor MSVC. I am not
knowledgeable about FACT! MSVC/Borland support.

This is yet another reason for the existence of Phoenix. Since Spirit v1.1,
there are already many Spirit-MSVC users. MSVC support is a very high
