[aspectc-user] Visual Studio and ac++ ?

	In fact I have access to both environments because the software in 
	which one I'd like to introduce aspect usage started its life cycle 
	with pre Visual Studio 8 versions (VC6 then VC7).

	But it has recently moved to VC8 in the main development branch.

	As using AOP is only relevant in this branch and the available 
	AspectC plug-in is referenced as working only with VC7, I thought the 
	direct usage of ac++.exe with VC8 was my only option.

	Am I wrong ?

	If I'm not, is it THAT complex to use ac++ directly (ranking from 	"Nightmare" to "piece of cake") ?

	Reading the ac++ weaver online documentation makes me feel like it's 

	Thank you.

there are several pitfalls when trying to weave VC++ source code. For 
example the implicit macro definitions, the underlying types of size_t 
and ptrdiff_t, some non-standard keywords, and last but not least the 
#import directive. I recommend to try the AspectC++ Add-In provided by 
pure-systems (the evaluation version is freely available at
