But your example contained a shared_ptr... (see below)

I agree that scoped_ptr::release would be useful.

[Original message from Joe Gottman]

    I think the scoped_ptr class should have a release() function, similar
    to the one in std::auto_ptr. This would help in cases like the

    int *foo() {
        shared_ptr<int> the_pointer(new int());
        //Do stuff that might throw
        return the_pointer.release();

Subject: Re: [boost] Suggestion: scoped_ptr::release()

As the one who originally made the suggestion, I would like to point out
that my original suggestion was that scoped_ptr, not shared_ptr, be given a
release() method. Since a scoped_ptr has exclusive ownership of the object
it points to, it becomes much easier to implement the release() method.
