Boost :

in my library I use _WIN32 macro to detect the case when I'm on windows (e.g.
to get the right header for 'environ'). However, Boost.Config has more
complex logic:

   #elif defined(_WIN32) || defined(__WIN32__) || defined(WIN32)
   // win32:

Does it mean I have to use the same conditional? Which compilers define
__WIN32__ or WIN32, but don't define _WIN32? Shouldn't there be a single
BOOST_WINDOWS macros to help in this cases?

FWIW, filesystem defines such macro internally:

# if !defined( BOOST_WINDOWS ) && !defined( BOOST_POSIX )
# if defined(_WIN32) || defined(__WIN32__) || defined(WIN32)
         || defined(__CYGWIN__)
# else
# define BOOST_POSIX
# endif
# endif
