I am using boost 1.45.0. I have tried to use both 'gcc' as well as 'acc' compilers.
In case of aCC ( version : A.06.26 ), I get errors in compilation of source code which uses boost. See below,

"/opt/boost/include/boost/interprocess/detail/move.hpp", line 90: error #2330-D:

Which version of aCC are you using ? It must be lower version as compared to A.06.26. I searched on web and found above errors are not generated by its predecessor versions.

Have you tried gcc or acc ? My problem is that lower versions of aCC are licensed ( I am currently using trial version of aCC ) and to use latest version too much boost code
needs to be hacked ! It is not at all a good idea.

And as i am using gcc, i found it too unusable as it is not stable enough to be used for a production level software. I have posted a related issue on below link,

I agree that HP-UX is not good for development.

Thanks for above suggestions !
