range/as_literal.hpp misses checks, whether wchar is even available

Reported by: René Bürgel <r.buergel@…> Owned by: Thorsten Ottosen
Milestone: Boost 1.36.0 Component: range
Version: Boost Development Trunk Severity: Regression
Keywords: Cc:


range/as_literal.hpp declares overloads for length() and is_char_ptr(), which also includes overloads for (const) wchar_t*.

This fails to compile on systems without wchar-Support. Also, you shouldn't rely on the presence of the system-header cwchar. There is a macro to test that.

I attached a patch, which makes it at least work on my system. It's Linux/uclibc, where the header cwchar and and the type wchar_t are present, but non of the system functions concerning wchar_t are available.

Kind regards, René
