The review period for Daryle Walker's "int" and "gcd" submissions will run
concurrently, beginning this coming Monday September 17th, and run through
Wednesday September 26th. I will act as review manager. A description of the
two submissions follows:


It extends <boost/integer.hpp> by providing typedef's for the built-in
integers based on the extreme value. The <boost/integer_mask.hpp> header
formalizes the masking constants used in the implementation of
<boost/crc.hpp>. The <boost/static_lb.hpp> gives the highest integral
of 2 in a number at compile time.

However, I haven't figured out how to solve the problem I described in
message #15791, nor has it been tested on other platforms. (I'm using a
OS 9.1 system with Metrowerks CodeWarrior Pro 5.3.)

It moves some runtime and compile-time code for determining the Greatest
Common Divisor and Least Common Multiple from the rational and pool
sub-libraries to their own header.


Please take some time to review these changes and post your usual thoughtful
responses to this mailing list.
