I'm running bcc 5.6.4 (through BCB6) and will be continuing to use
spirit for the forseeable future with it, but I'm ony using it for a
simple XML parser (basically the same as the example simple xml parser)
so probably don't push spirit too hard.

I've just tried to run the regression tests. Have had to modify:

spirit\tree\common.hpp line 98 (for same reason as closure_frame) to


Have had to modify bug_000008.cpp line 102-106 to

     boost::thread t1(&in_thread);
     boost::thread t2(&in_thread);
     boost::thread t3(&in_thread);
     boost::thread t4(&in_thread);

because 5.6.4 doesn't like it when you don't have the & for functions.

These still fail to compile:

Unfortunately I don't have much knowledge with the regression test.
Does it generate a summary somewhere? I ran

bjam -sTOOLS=borland --dump-tests test >bjam.log 2>&1



I don't have much time to spend on this at the mo, but if you think I
can be of more help, then feel free to e-mail me.
