Installation of the final 8.0 (after beta 1 and 2) has caused me some
confusion because the output build logs don't contain the full compiler
version. For example using a post build event with the test suite, as
recommended (- strongly see PS below)
includes this info:
Compiler: Microsoft Visual C++ version 8.0
STL : Dinkumware standard library version 405
Boost : 1.33.0
The macro _MSC_FULL_VER is 140050215
looks like version 1400 build 50215
Would it be useful to decode in boost/config/compiler/visual.hpp this into
version 8.0 and build 50215? (Or?)
A new macro BOOST_COMPILER_BUILD ?
So that various releases can be distingushed?
CMD.EXE was started with
'\\hetp3\i$\boost_1_33_0\libs\test\build\msvc71_proj' as the current
directory path. UNC paths
are not supported. Defaulting to Windows directory.
Running 5 test cases...
Which misses showing the full log report that IS shown with an autorun
(which is any case much more convenient and recommended by Gennadiy at
I found a MS article
about the message
'<UNC path>' is an invalid current directory path. UNC paths are not
Defaulting to Windows directory.
The article does not seem accurate and I have queried it with MS.
I have also previously seen with the logging library (proposed).
