It may be operator error here also... see my other message
NO documentation anywhere suggests that enforcing standard C++ using MSVC
will affect one's ability to use any of the boost libraries.

I've found that using the /Za option breaks a lot of things for using boost.
I believe we've gone a bit overboard in our requirements for MSVC
for example, all of my date_time stuff works JUST fine....even using /Za
if I simply add a line to auto_link.hpp which will accept _MSC_VER >= 1310

I note that another test from a colleague (boost threads) won't compile if
/Za is turned on.
the visualc.hpp file in config turns off the Win32API if extensions aren't
Say what?? what do the language extensions have to do with libraries
being called?

I'll be happy to add my small tests to the test suite as soon as I figure
out how to incorporate them... right now, I just build 3 different
"solutions" I have every morning after updating from CVS.
