Hi all,
Is anyone working on a Boost library extension for
generally interpolating numbers (i.e. int, float,
rational, quaternion etc.), or for timing concepts
that deal with using high resolution system timers in
an organized, easy to use way (for instance, a class
that returns a floating point value between zero and
one based on a time of x milliseconds/microseconds)?
If not, is there any interest in the Boost community
for such an extension? I know that I could really use
something like that for animation programs, and I can
see how library extensions such as these would come in
handy in other areas (mathematics, graphing, etc.),
but I'm not sure about the general interest. I would
be pleased to provide such an extension to Boost if
the interest is there (I have some code of my own that
I could use as the base of the project, and I believe
that libs/threads/src/xtime.cpp provides a high
resolution system timer wrapper called xtime_get(...)
that I could use for a Boost timing library). Any
questions/comments about my (early) design so far will
be appreciated. Thanks in advance for any input you
may have.
