I'm going to need to do some work that involves time and dates, so I started
to look at the Boost Date Time Library.
I was a little disappoint, thought, of its documentation. Shoudn't the "Full
Doxygen Reference Manual", currently a link from the docs to an online
location, be included in the docs that will come in the next release?
There's a lot there that's not documented on the main docs. And that
reference online doesn't seems to be updated, it still references Generic
Date Time Library 0.57.

The file class_greg_base_facet.html isn't linked from anywhere, and has
roughly the same contents of date_iterators.html

- file class_date.html:

in the table Construction From String, second example is wrong. Should be

std::string ds("20020125");
date d(from_undelimited_string(ds))

instead of

std::string ds("20020125");
date d(from_string(ds))

- file class_date_period.html:

in the table Construction, the first example, the first description and the
second syntax are wrong. Should be:

Syntax | Description | Example
date_period(date begin, date last) | Create a period as [begin, end). If
end is <= begin then the period will be defined as null. | date_period
dp(date(2002,Jan,10), date(2002,Jan,12));
date_period(date start, date_duration len) | Create a period as [begin,
begin+len). If len is <= zero then the period will be defined as null. |
date_period dp(date(2002,Jan,10), date_duration(2));

in the table Accessor, the examples for intersection and merge are wrong
