> Why not use boost::lexical_cast<std::string>(something_to_convert)?


#include <boost/lexical_cast.hpp>
#include <string>
#include <iostream>

int main()
    std::cout << boost::lexical_cast<std::string>("this is a test");

2) to_string() is the established, novice-friendly name for this idiom; even
with a working lexical_cast, I'd prefer to_string when I want to_string
behavior since it leaves less room for errors.
