I've tested the following ones:
Only _WCHAR_T_DEFINED is defined, both for VC6 and Intel C++ 6.0 (and with
or without the "/Zc:wchar_t" switch). Moreover, this means, as Gennaro
pointed out, that this macro is set whether or not it's an intrinsic type,
and not just a typedef for unsigned short, which isn't particularly helpful.
