As the Google Summer of Code has ended yesterday I'd like to thank
Google and my mentor Hartmut Kaiser for the opportunity and guidance.
Whilst Coerce is an on-going project (it's more than a year old
already, time does fly when you're having fun) the GSoC sped up
To summarize Coerce for those not familiar with it, it's a
type-to-string and string-to-type conversion library aiming at speed
and extensibility. During the GSoC the following major things have
* Added tests, catching bugs and allowing me to prevent bugs in the
* Rewritten the tag system to be more flexible.
* Added documentation, the latest version of which can be found over
In general the library matured, and while it's not done yet (the
documentation in particular) I believe it's approaching production
stability with the number of impacting changes dropping significantly
over time. The current code can be found at
http://svn.boost.org/svn/boost/sandbox/coerce/ and as usual I'd be
grateful for any comments or critique. If you have questions do not
hesitate to contact me.
P.S. If you're still using construe_cast (a previous incarnation of
this project) please consider migrating to Coerce as I plan on
removing https://github.com/VeXocide/construe_cast soon.
