That should be 14.7.1 :-) I've added a test to static_assert to see if
other compilers have this problem.

Howard's suggestions didn't help either. For example this.. doesn't work
with CodeWarrior 8.x. And it case it was missed, this is not a problem
with the 9.x version.

#include <msl_utility>
template <int N> int foo() {
   typedef Metrowerks::int2type<sizeof(
     Metrowerks::compile_assert< N < 2 > my_assertion;
   return N;
int main() {
   return foo<9>();

This failure only worries me because it's likely hiding either a bunch
of other failures, or successes. So if anyone has some idea on how to
make a macro generate different code based on function or non-function
context I would _love_ to know.

PS.I already tried the *FUNCTION* pp symbols, but those are compile time
substitutions not preprocessor subs.
