I added another test file for the I/O-state saving classes. It's in
the main Boost CVS as "boost/libs/io/test/ios_state_unit_test.cpp".
I have two compilers installed (GCC 3.1 and CodeWarrior 8). I wrote
and tested the new file with CodeWarrior. But my GCC doesn't support
the wchar_t part of the libraries, so I can't test with that compiler.
Can other people test the file with other compilers to make sure
everything is OK?
I want the new file to replace the current test file there, but I want
to make sure everything works.
For locale experts and Metrowerks engineers: the unit test for the
locale saving class has big comments about a problem with use_facet.
Some book I got on IOStreams says that use_facet should do an ID check
and a dynamic_cast check, but the CodeWarrior implementation seems to
only do the ID check. Should CodeWarrior change to also do the
dynamic-check? The standard is vague on this question. (It could just
be a QoI issue; maybe there's a DR on it.)
