No, it's msvc-8.0

Regression results aside, this doesn't compile:

#include <iostream>
#include <boost/mpl/at.hpp>
#include <boost/mpl/int.hpp>
#include <boost/mpl/string.hpp>

int main()
   typedef boost::mpl::string<'hell', 'o wo', 'rld!'> str;

   std::cout << boost::mpl::at<str, boost::mpl::int_<0> >::value <<
   std::cout << str::c_str << std::endl;


Again, I simply copied char.hpp, char_fwd.hpp, and string.hpp into boost

It could be that it's because I'm not grabbing the entire boost tree
from svn but since I can replicate the problem with a basic program
that's using the same techniques you are, I really doubt that.

Looking deeper, you need to change:


Alternatively, you could just keep telling me it's working and I'll go
away. I'm not loaded with a lot of spare time either.
