The review of Daryle Walker's "More IO" library begins
today, August 21, 2004.

Download: [or]

Provides a multitude of I/O-oriented extensions.  Some are extra
manipulators; variants of "std::endl", a resetting manipulator, and a
configurable manipulator.  The library includes a set of base class
templates for wrapping a new stream-buffer type around a stream class.

Changes from the last interim version (called ""):
* split the manipulator header into several headers
* refined the license statements in some already-affected files

Changes from the first formal review (called ""):
* refined the interface and implementation of array-streams and
stream-buffer wrappers (including a wrapping example)
* added the null-stream, value-stream, and pointer-stream headers
* added generalizations to the new-line and skip-line manipulators
* added the non-oriented 'reset' and 'form' manipulators
* split the manipulator header into several headers
* changed the license statements

Your comments may be brief or lengthy, but basically the Review Manager
needs your
evaluation of the library. If you identify problems along the way, please
note if they are minor,
serious, or showstoppers.

Here are some questions you might want to answer in your review:
What is your evaluation of the design?
What is your evaluation of the implementation?
What is your evaluation of the documentation?
What is your evaluation of the potential usefulness of the library?
Did you try to use the library? With what compiler? Did you have any
How much effort did you put into your evaluation? A glance? A quick reading?
In-depth study?
Are you knowledgeable about the problem domain?
And finally, every review should answer this question:
Do you think the library should be accepted as a Boost library? Be sure to
say this explicitly so that your other comments don't obscure your overall
