        I'm trying to use the "get" template with boost::variant but
        can't figure out how to get my compiler to recognize it.

        Here's a simple test program:

#include <iostream>
#include <cmath>
#include <string>
#include <boost/variant.hpp>
using namespace boost;
using namespace std;
typedef variant<int, double, string> elem_t;
int main ()
    elem_t pi = M_PI;
    double d = get (pi);
    cout << "pi =~ " << d << endl;
    return 0;
	But my compiler (gcc 3.3.2) tells me:
g++  -I/home/tools/boost-1.31.0   test.cpp   -o test
test.cpp: In function `int main()':
test.cpp:15: error: no matching function for call to `get(elem_t&)'
	I'm using Boost 1.31.0.  Thanks for any help,
