I have problems with reading the time fraction at converting from string to ptime. Here is the regarding soruce code:

#include <iostream>
#include <string>
#include <boost/date_time.hpp>
#include <boost/date_time/posix_time/posix_time.hpp>
#include <boost/date_time/gregorian/gregorian.hpp>
#include <boost/date_time/posix_time/conversion.hpp>

int main( int, char * )
   using namespace std;
   using namespace boost;
   using namespace boost::posix_time;
   using namespace boost::local_time;
   using namespace boost::gregorian;

   time_facet*       output_facet = new time_facet();
   time_input_facet* input_facet  = new time_input_facet();

   stringstream sstream;
   sstream.imbue(locale(locale::classic(), output_facet));
   sstream.imbue(locale(sstream.getloc() , input_facet ));

   string format("%d/%m/%Y %H:%M:%S.%f"); //example works fine without %f!!!
   output_facet->format( format.c_str()
   input_facet->format( format.c_str() 

   ptime dt = microsec_clock().local_time();

   sstream << dt;
   cout << sstream.str() << en
   string time_string = sstream.str();

   ptime tgtDt( boost::date_time::not_a_date_time );
   sstream.str( time_string.c_str() 
   sstream >> tgtDt;
   cout << tgtDt << endl;

The program runs fine without the %f inside the format string. But with %f tgtDt is "not-a-date-time". I use boost 1.44 and the doc says %f shold work, because every input incompatible format flag is marked bei "!" in the documentation.

Any ideas how to get the frac part out of a string?
