#4105: Const issue in split_std_deque_policy.hpp
 Reporter: taylor_goodhart@… | Owner: djowel

Milestone: Boost 1.43.0 | Component: spirit
  Version: Boost 1.42.0 | Severity: Problem
 Keywords: |
 When trying to compile the example code given on the Spirit web site here:
 I ran into a "cannot convert from 'const char' to 'char &'" error when
 compiling under VS 2010 Express. The error occurred in
 split_std_dequeue_policy.hpp:69, and the following line fixes the problem:

 return const_cast< MultiPass::reference >( MultiPass::template
 get_input<Value>( mp ) );

 However using const_cast usually indicates a deeper flaw, so I'm not sure
 this is an acceptable long term fix.
