If all you did was implement an algorithm that was described, then there is
no issue. Copyright does not apply to algorithms and ideas, but to the words
themselves. If you copied example code straight from the book, then there
could be issues.

Unfortunately, neither the GPL nor the GPLL (or is that LGPL?) meet the
Boost licensing requirements (see
http://www.boost.org/more/lib_guide.htm#License). GNU requires source code
to be available to the end user. Boost forbids such a requirement in its
Boost list run by bdawes at acm.org, gregod at cs.rpi.edu, cpdaniel at pacbell.net, john at johnmaddock.co.uk
