VC++ is not a compiler. At the very least, this needs a version, after all
there are ages between VC6 and VC8 and both are still in use!

My guess is that they have the hash containers from the STL.

Boost has a TR1 implementation and it documents pretty well which parts
thereof are implemented and which aren't. Specifically that would be and it says that it is _not_

Sorry, can't help with that. If you dearly need TR1's unordered containers,
you could license a TR1 implementation from Dinkumware though.

Other than that, what exactly is it that you want to achieve? Knowing that
