error C2872: 'time_t' : ambiguous symbol in microsec_time_clock.hpp line 168 :

Reported by: Kevin Duffy <duffy151+boost@…> Owned by: az_sw_dude
Milestone: Boost 1.40.0 Component: date_time
Version: Boost 1.37.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:


Using MS Visual Studio 2008, If I have a time_t type defined, this error will occur as the compile can't resolve if the time_t is my type or the one from the one in \microsoft visual studio 9.0\vc\include\crtdefs.h(580) : time32_t time_t

The fix is trivial; simply need to qualify the time_t in the static_cast of the cited line. diff attached.

This isn't really a good idea to override standard types in user's code. However, it's pretty easy to fix.
