I'm sorry, you can't use ac++ in conjunction with VC++ 6.0. This
compiler is so far away from being standard-compliant that it doesn't
make sense for us to support it.

Starting from VC++ 7.0 ".cc" is accepted as the extension of a C++
source file.

Have a look at the README file in the AspectC++ directory of the source
code tarball. You can obtain the libxml from libxml.org. It's a third
party XML parser library, which is being used in many open source projects.

Don't try to compile Puma/AspectC++ with VC++. We usually compile it
with g++, even for the Win32 platform.

Did you already consult the compiler manual, which is available from the
AspectC++ web site?
