Boost :

Just took a quick look and the part that caught my eye was the numeric
promotion code in numeric_concept.hpp as I just wrote some myself. Attached
is my version, that I believe fully supports the builtin types. To allow
other types (std::complex for example) I've allowed types to have a
priority. So it would be possible to have
typedef boost::promote_numeric_type< std::complex<int>, other_type>::type

Hope this is of some help to you,

dimensions and units library, I'm guessing the lack of replies is due to my

the qualified_unit folder (many additional features, as well as replacing
uses of deprecated boost macros). But my change of email address seems to
prohibit my deleting of my own uploads.
