Borland compiler is not officially supported. If you manage to compile POCO with Borland compiler and submit the patches, we'll be glad to incorporate them into the codebase. Also, if you are willing to take ownership of the Borland build system, we'll welcome that, too.

BTW, this is not exactly the right forum. [url=http://pocoproject.org/poco/wiki/tiki-view_forum.php?forumId=6|Support] or http://pocoproject.org/poco/wiki/tiki-view_forum.php?forumId=3]Wishlist[/url would have been a more appropriate place for this kind of post.

I am not sure you'll have luck with Borland C++ 6. From the past, I remember some issues with regards to C++ standard conformity with that compiler (but that may have also been with BCB 5, it was a long time ago...)

Your best bet would be to use __CB2007__ (C++ Builder 2007) or newer as they have made strides in being conformant.
