Hi All The review of the Egg library by Shunsuke Sogame has been running for 1 week now. There has been some discussion of the library on a couple of related threads, but no reviews submitted so far. Please try and find time to submit a review of this library if possible. If you wish to review, but don't have time before the review ends on April 13th, please post to that effect, we may be able to extend / move the review period to help reviewers. Introduction: It is not so easy to define Function Objects especially if you want to support Boost.ResultOf and Boost.Lambda. Therefore, as Boost provides iterator_facade and iterator adaptors, Egg provides function_facade and function adaptors. Egg provides the following features: * Workaround for the Forwarding Problem * Helpers to build Function Objects: * egg::function and egg::function_facade provides the way to build Function Objects which supports Boost.ResultOf and Lambda. * Function Objects Adaptors(in other words, higher-order functions): * egg::curryN supports the currying. * egg::pipable emulates extension methods(C#). * egg::fuse/unfuse emulates variadic functions. * egg::nestN represents nested lambda expressions. * etc... The documentation is on line: The zipped source code is in Vault/FunctionObjects: Tested under: Boost Development Trunk and Boost Version1.34.1. --------------------------------------------------- Please always state in your review, whether you think the library should be accepted as a Boost library! Additionally please consider giving feedback on the following general topics: - What is your evaluation of the design? - What is your evaluation of the implementation? - What is your evaluation of the documentation? - What is your evaluation of the potential usefulness of the library? - Did you try to use the library? With what compiler? Did you have any problems? - How much effort did you put into your evaluation? A glance? A quick reading? In-depth study? - Are you knowledgeable about the problem domain?
