You're welcome. Glad to help. 8)

I have the plugin for visual studio, but it doesn't seem to be
simulating it correctly. I tested it like this:
/* file test.h */
template <class D>
/* end of test.h /*
In the command line:

vc6 doesn't support template specialization.

intel compiles it without problem.

It seems that gccxml is simulating vc6, and not intel... but note that
I'm using intel c++ v6.0, and in the page says that support is for
version 5.0... but I believe that the version 5.0 supported template

Thanks again for the help, and congratulations for this great tool.
