Hi all,

I'm using VC++ 7.1 on Win2k and I have build the regex and thread libs
using the IDE which means that /Zc:wchar_t is not by default enabled. Are
saying that it should be? Is this true for both libs or just regex? I mean
I'm having these
settings for some time now and everything worked just fine ... and I'm not
sure if
I should really add the /Zc:wchar_t to these libs.

Thx a lot,
