This is my first time so please be gentle.
Inspired by MC++D I just started looking at the boost library. It is very
rich so I can't give my opinion on most of it.
I do have one question: why doesn't Boost.threads seem to support
thread cancelation? It doesn't seem to be mentioned in the documentation.
Also, the mutex/lock implementation seems a bit elaborate. I undertstand that
the motivations were good, but it strikes me as being too much. And I am not
sure how much more stupidproof the elaborate scheme is, than a simpler api
would be. Thats one mans opinion.
All the math and regex and graph and array and function stuff is welcome to
me. BTW: where are the typelists? There must be reason they are not here.
Anyway I look forward to closer study of Boost and I enjoy your mailing list.
