Thank you for your interest.

I've fixed the error you spotted. I also changed the code to use the new
iterator adapters. I was not able to reproduce all your warnings, however.
I've included an MSVC 7.1 project in the build directory (you'll have to
adjust the include path for boost.) Please let me know if you still have

You're right. Good industrial strength examples would be compressing with
zlib or some serious XML formatting, which I have been thinking of
providing. I'll try to put up some simple examples soon -- possibly
translations of some of Kanze's examples.

I'll also write a test program which uses all the library features, to catch
most of the errors like the one you found (I don't see how I was ever able
to compile the test.)
