Yes - See http://www.boost.org/tools/inspect/index.html. Bjorn Karlsson
runs it and then pesters people to fix the problems.
Maybe we should run it daily and post the output with the regression tests.
Perhaps if it was public developers would be more motivated to fix
Hum... I just had a thought. What if the output was reformatted as an html
table? One row per library with columns for the error counts for the
different kinds of errors. Click through to see the actual error messages.
That would give us an overview we could watch as we approached releases.
Anyone like to volunteer to write such a program? It should probably be
separate from inspect itself to separate the concern of detecting errors
separate from reporting concerns.
