Subject: [boost] Debug Assertion Failed while trying to use read_graphviz

I tried to compile and run in VS 2008 the following example illustrating how
to use read_graphviz() function:

#include <boost/graph/graphviz.hpp>

#include <boost/graph/adjacency_list.hpp>

#include <string>

#include <sstream>

using namespace boost;

using namespace std;

int main() {

// Vertex properties

typedef property < vertex_name_t, std::string,

property < vertex_color_t, float > > vertex_p;

// Edge properties

typedef property < edge_weight_t, double > edge_p;

// Graph properties

typedef property < graph_name_t, std::string > graph_p;

// adjacency_list-based type

typedef adjacency_list < vecS, vecS, directedS,

vertex_p, edge_p, graph_p > graph_t;

// Construct an empty graph and prepare the dynamic_property_maps.

graph_t graph(0);

dynamic_properties dp;

property_map<graph_t, vertex_name_t>::type name =

get(vertex_name, graph);"node_id",name);

property_map<graph_t, vertex_color_t>::type mass =

get(vertex_color, graph);"mass",mass);

property_map<graph_t, edge_weight_t>::type weight =

get(edge_weight, graph);"weight",weight);

// Use ref_property_map to turn a graph property into a property map



// Sample graph as an std::istream;


gvgraph("digraph { graph [name=\"graphname\"] a c e [mass = 6.66] }");

bool status = read_graphviz(gvgraph,graph,dp,"node_id");

return 0;


When I run the program I get the Debug Assertion Failed message (when I
delete the line with read_graphviz everything is OK). Could you please help
me with this problem?

Thank you,
