My impressions of this are highly favourable from the examples and tests, but I
haven't tried to use it in anger yet as I am uncertain if it compiles with 2003 (aka 7.1?). Is this known yet? Suck it and see?

(A feature I do not see is control of the number of items before a newline. I am
not sure if this is a sensible feature in these days of scroll bars and I can
see it is fraught with difficulties).

I didn't spot any examples with floating point values. Do these introduce any
hidden snags?

| Subject: [boost] IO Formatting Manipulators
| Does anyone have any ideas/suggestions:
| * on where I should extend the code
| * what features they would like to see that are not currently available
| * bugs/inconsistencies with existing features
| I would also like to have comments on what people want out of the
| documentations. Whether they want:
| * a technical description of the facilities
| * an 'under the hood' look at the implementation
| * standardese description of the classes
| * detailed examples of how to output a given type
| * organisational ideas (e.g. separate the tutorial from the main section)
| * rationale for the various design choices
| * other features
| NOTE: Because I have revised the main code, I am looking at overhauling what
| documentation I had. The documentation is high on my to do list, but I have
| not started it yet as I have been busy. I should start it on Wednesday.
| All feedback would be very welcome.
| PS: Here is a link to the latest version in case you missed it.
| Regards,
| Reece
