Developers Studio is a stripped down version of CodeWarrior Pro. It
only has CodeWarrior for Mach-O compilers and linkers for
C/C++/Objective C/Objective C++.

There is no Java support, no command line tools, no cross compilers, no
PEF/CFM compilers.

You still need to download the Apple developers Tools to use it.

Boost will have to configure itself differently depending upon whether
you are using BSD C or MSL C. BSD C is only available under Mach-O.
MSL C is available under Mach-O and PEF. MSL C++ will set
_MSL_USING_GCC_C or _MSL_USING_MSL_C depending on which C lib is

Alternatively you can test for __MSL__ which is defined as the version
number if MSL C has been included, and for __MSL_CPP__ which will be
defined if MSL C++ has been included. Both of these latter version
numbers will always increase in value with time.
