The formal review of Vladimir Prus' Command Line & Config
("program_options") library starts today, May 21, and will continue until
Monday, June 2nd. I will be serving as review manager.

The library aims to provide developers with an easy and convenient way to
obtain program options - user-supplied (name,value) pairs - via conventional
methods such as command line and config file.

The library is available at

Please note that the documentation is packaged separately from the sources.
It also can be viewed online -

The library is known to work at least on the following compilers:

  * gcc 2.95 / 3.2 / 3.3
  * Microsoft Visual C++ 7.1
  * Intel C++ Compiler 7.0
  * Borland C++ 5.5.1

When submitting reviews, please state explicitly whether or not you believe
that the library should be accepted into Boost.
