Hi Vivek.

Actually I think you are on the wrong boost list. The one you want for this sort
query is the boost user list gmane.comp.lib.boost.user. I have cross posted this
item there and you should send
any followups there only too.

As far as I know Boost.Timer is just a wrapper for the C standard timer
functions in <ctime>.
Anyway it would be helpful to provide more details of the compiler you are using
and the actual error messages you are getting too.

Hope this helps
