As I mentioned earlier, I don't have access to a current Visual C++
compiler, but I'm happy to add relevant warning suppressing
#pragmas...sounds like it doesn't like me naming arguments in
template declarations...

I've put two preprocessor switches in the utility.hpp header that
should allow you to have more fine-grained control over the use of
and method for demangling :

if the source file has a #define MCS_USE_DEMANGLING, the standard C++
ABI demangler is used, while #define MCS_USE_BOOST_REGEX_DEMANGLING
uses both the standard demangler and boost.regex to clean up the
resulting mpl typenames to make them a bit easier to read. In any
case, this stuff is probably only interested to people who are
interested in the guts of the dim analysis code, since it is all
hidden by the unit/quantity classes...

Anyway, you can replace the utility.hpp header in mcs/units with the
attached one, then comment out the #define at the top of
unit_example_1.hpp to eliminate demangling completely. Does anyone
know if GCC is the only compiler to support demangling? If it is, I
will just put all the demangling stuff inside the #ifdef __GNUC__ as
Paul suggests...

Deane's last post indicated that he now had all tests I
wrong, Deane?

> Do you need a using boost::mpl::size_t;? to resolve the ambiguity?

I think it's the opposite problem - the cxxabi.h header has a bunch
of references to size_t that aren't qualified with std::. Anyway, I
think the problem went away (again, per Deane) when I moved my using
namespace boost::mpl; inside the boost::units namespace. Again,
please correct me if I'm wrong...

Thanks for the input.
