Where can I find the results of the tests you mentioned? AFAIK, Spirit
wasn't part of the boost test suite? Are you referring to metacomm's
tests? If so, I am looking at it now and we'll try to fix some of the
failures. So far, our own tests look good:
It just so happens that the metacomm's tests at:
emphasizes compilers such as borland, vc6 and vc7, which Spirit
1.8.0 do not support any more. So, perhaps a lot of those tests
really ought to be "expected failures" (if I understand the meaning
of "expected failures" correctly).
