Boost :

  Hi John, thank you for the responce.

  I've found no info or how-to about Win x64 version of the Boost on, so I'll appreciate for any data concerned.

  All we need is just to implement 3 Boost 1.32 libs (libboost_date_time,
libboost_regex, libboost_filesystem) for x64 application. Is it enough just
to rebuild ones with x64 compiler (MS 8, Intel 9) from sources?
What code version is good for it?

  Sorry I have no time for regular reggression testing, but could find
remote access to x64 host if somebody would be interested in it.
