I plan to do that at some point.
I'm writing the docs as docbook xml, and this is still an intermediate

With the current MSVC version, I very much doubt.
With some upcoming version in the foreseeable future, maybe (MS is
making progress)

> 3. What is the relation between LL bind and boost bind library?
Bind is basically a subset of LL.
Note however, that the implementations are different and not compatible.
There are some semantic differences (which the docs do not yet cover).
So while you can write:

boost::lambda::_1 + boost::lambda::bind(foo, boost::lambda::_2)

you cannot write

boost::lambda::_1 + boost::bind::bind(foo, boost::bind::_2)

Historically, LL existed prior to boost::bind and bind functions were
part of LL and had pretty much the same interface as current boost::bind.
This explains the overlap of the libraries.
