Fw: Re: [regex]using boost::regex with STLport 5.0 on VS.net

Wang Weiwei

I think there would better be a way to prevent other people - as stupid as me :) - from making the same low-level mistake.
The posible solution may be a check of the STLport macros in building with STLport toolsets.

Thanks again.

YES, I have defined the __STL_DEBUG macro for the debug build.

GREAT! That really helps. Using a text editor, I cannot find _STL or _STLD names in a should-be STLport linked lib, but I can find "std"!

Everything gets ok after I adding 2 lines into the build batch file:

SET INCLUDE="D:\STLport_50\stlport";%INCLUDE%
SET LIB="D:\STLport_50\lib";%LIB%

Thank you so much!
