     I would be interested in helping out with this. I have had experience
     of using and porting ACE and extensive experience of protocol
     implementation with some experience of protocol design.
     I've had a look at Joesphe's diagram and at the momment it looks like
     a very low level wrapper facarde that would not be very safe.
     At the protocol level its missing broadcast and multicast concepts
     and, I would suggest that it is missing concepts such as acceptors and
     connectors and event demultipleing similar to the ACE Reactor.
     This is something that I recently started looking at from a design
     perspective, so I don't *yet* have a concrete proposal.
     I could probably have something preliminary ready nexct week.

Subject: [boost] Help with a Sockets library?

Joseph Berrios, a grad student at the University of Florida, has been
working on a Sockets library for Boost at my urging. I provided him with a
list of requirements, and he has been reading the literature and has gone
through a couple of design iterations.
The UML diagram for his current design is at
His overall grasp of C++ interface/implementation principles seems
reasonable, although I haven't seen enough examples to be sure. But his
detailed C++ coding skills, including meeting Boost's requirements and
guidelines, seem to need further development.
Would anyone like to volunteer to work with Joseph as a mentor and/or
co-author for a Boost Sockets Library?
If so, please contact him at jberrios_at_[hidden]
