I've attached a suggested version for
There are 2 changes
a) It adds some logic to make sure
is defined in VC7 when /Za is used. Thanks to Jason for confirming this
is a bug (fixed in 7.1) and the rather obvious fact that the macro
_MSC_EXTENSIONS can be used to detect this configuration
b) It moves the definition of NOMINMAX so it is only made for VC6 where
is is required. There seems to be no reason to poluted the namepace with
this definition unless it is required
A third point that could be changed. Does anyone know why the line
is in the header? A commented out definition is really very confusing.
Is there any case when this definition is required?
