The formal review of Dynamic Bitset by Chuck Alison and Jeremy
will commence today Saturday June 8th and run through Monday,
The library is currently available at
Below is an excerpt from the library's documentation:
The dyn_bitset class represents a set of bits. It provides
accesses to the value of individual bits via an operator
and provides all of the bitwise operators that one can
apply to builtin integers, such as operator&& and
operator<<. The number of bits in the set is specified at
runtime via a parameter to the constructor of the
Each bit represents either the Boolean value true (set) or
false (reset). To toggle a bit is to change the value to
true if it is false and to false if it is true. Each bit
has a non-negative position pos. The position pos == 0
corresponds to the least significant bit and pos == size()
- 1 is the most significant bit. When converting an
instance of dyn_bitset to or from an unsigned long, the bit
position pos corresponds to the bit value 1 << pos.
The dyn_bitset class is nearly identical to the std::bitset
class. The difference is that the size of the dyn_bitset
(the number of bits) is specified at run-time during the
construction of a dyn_bitset object, whereas the size of a
std::bitset is specified at compile-time through an integer
For information about submitting a Formal Review, see
Please try out the library and comment during the review
period. Be sure to say whether or not you think the library
should be accepted by Boost.
Compiler notes: This library has been tested using the
following compiler platforms:
Gcc 2.95 and 3.01
Metrowerks Codewarrior 8 (beta, Mac)
Visual C++ 7.0
The library presently requires template friend support and is
known not to compile with CodeWarrior 7.2 or Visual C++ 6.0.
The library has not been tested with Borland.
The Formal Review manager is Mat Marcus.
