Boost :

I am an engineer in HP's aCC compiler team. We are actively working on Boost
defects and the internal developmental version of the compiler compiles many of
the Boost libraries successfully. There is a compiler patch (for both PA and
IPF) coming up by end of this month: if any of you are interested and have a
support contract, you can register for beta testing. The current compiler status
for aCC shows that the pass percentage is dismal 26%, but with this patch, it
should be more than 70% (we are working on improving it further). Many
libraries, such as regex, bind, any, thread already compile successfully with
this patch compiler. Please note that the fixes are in the compiler without
modifying the Boost sources; we came across a few defects in the Boost sources
which we can share with you so that they can be fixed (or provide a workaround
or #ifdefed). It would be great if we can work together to resolve any issues,
which will be mutually beneficial. If you come across any defects in the
compiler while compiling the Boost sources, you can file bug reports for the
same. Any issues on developing with aC++ compiler will be immediately responded
in cxx-dev_at_[hidden] newsgroup.

I'd love to see regex working with aCC if it's humanly possible, if you want
to mail me privately with any queries you may have that would be fine -
especially if you have a working relationship with HP personnel - we've
managed to persuade quite a few other vendors to work with us, and even to
use Boost for their internal regression tests, HP is one of the notable
exceptions so far :-|
