I finally figured out why the regression test for boost.thread didn't
compile on vacpp 5.
The problem is with tests of the form:
boost::xtime_get(&xt, boost::TIME_UTC), boost::TIME_UTC);
This gets expanded to something that uses the type of the arguments as a
The problem is that boost::TIME_UTC is an unnamed enum and vacpp 5
(rightly? I think yes.) complains, that unnamed types must not be used
as a template argument.
The fix is easy, change everything like the above to
et voila, the thread regression tests compile and execute ok.
