I suggest you try out Boost 1.37, which has just been released and
contains many more Borland specific fixes than 1.36 . That said, as
you've already been told, C++ Builder is still way behind g++ and VC++
in terms of standard compliance and Boost support. Many libraries just
don't work, while others work only partially.
