Please add the Filesystem Library to the queue for a Formal Review.

The library can be downloaded from

It is also available in the Boost sandbox CVS on SourceForge. See

This release includes several improvements suggested by Thomas Witt and
Baptiste Lepilleur.

The current implementation has been tested under Windows 2000, and passes
the regression tests for Borland, GCC 3.1, Intel 6.0, Metrowerks 8.1, and
Microsoft VC++ 7.0. Most of the library can be used with VC++ 6.0, but the
fstream.hpp header won't work due to a VC++ library bug. An earlier
version passed the tests on Linux/GCC.

The current implementation is supposed to work on any POSIX system, but
that support hasn't been fully tested. Reports of tests on POSIX systems
would be appreciated.
