c++.stlsoft - Re: Need some help STLsoft + Turbo Explorer

 Hi everyone,
 
 I was looking for a way to output data to an excel spreadsheet using C++ 
 and came across VOLE as a possible way to interface that. But it seems 
 like STLsoft doesn't support Turbo C++ Explorer. It uses bcc32 v5.82 w/ 
 the Dinkumware STL library. Currently this is the compiling error I get 
 when I try to build the xmlValidator from codeproject:
 
 [C++ Fatal Error] stlsoft.h(326): F1003 Error directive: Currently only 
 versions 5.51, 5.6 and 5.6.4 of the Borland C++ compiler are supported by 
 the STLSoft libraries
 
 Are there any plans to support turbo explorer also and is there any 
 workaround or quick modifications I can make to get stlsoft to work with 
 turbo explorer?

I think this is now sorted. I've worked through a number of issues, and can compile,build and execute a VOLE program with Turbo Explorer. Am hoping to release STLSoft 1.9.7 asap - probably in next two days; at the w/e at the latest. Will try and post a patch for VOLE users tonight/tomorrow. Cheers Matt

That's awesome. Thank you so much for taking the time to make stlsoft/vole work with borland's compiler. Looking forward to next release :)

Please feel free to hassle me if I'm late in delivering. I've got a *lot* on my plate at the moment, but doing this is a relatively small effort now, so I should be able to do it in a few hours, as long as it doesn't slip off my to-do list. So, hassle away if you don't hear from me asap. Cheers Matt
