I was quite interested in this proposition, as I wanted to use lexical_cast
with wide characters.
I'm using MSVC 6.0.
When running the supplied test suite, the following line is reported as
Test - Failed (line 378) (Should have thrown exception)
Source type = int (123)
Destination type = unsigned short (49)
The result is the first digit of the supplied int.
I did not see this mentioned in the file's comments, nor could I find
mention of it in the list archives, so I thought you should know.
The above problem? does not seem to affect lexical_casts to
