An updated views library is now in the vault.
Gary has been busy during the last two weeks and has
implemented suggestions from different boost members:
swap is now defined in the views namespace. The "using std::swap"
trick relying on Koenig lookup and/or explicit specification of the
suitable namespace are used by now. The former extension of the std
namespace is available as a compile time option (default off).
Forward declarations of containers and algorithms in std are
a compile time option, default off. If on, the nonstandard
hash_* containers of the SGI STL implementation in std are
forward declared only if the SGI implementation is used. (The
detection is probably somewhat quirky.)
I don't dare to say the views library is standard compliant or ready
for inclusion into boost, but we intend to proceed into this
direction, if there is some interest to have the views in boost.
Since neither of us is a real guru, we will occasionally need some
help from you to achieve this goal.
