The new version of typeof library can be found at:
This version contains the following improvements:
1) The compilation speed is significantly improved for simple types by not
instantiating unnecessary templates;
2) Support for integral template parameters has been added so that, for
example, a template:
template<class T, unsigned int ui, bool b, short s> class foo;
can be registered like this:
BOOST_REGISTER_TEMPLATE_X(foo, (class)(unsigned int)(bool)(short));
(_X stands for "extra" or "extended". Any naming improvement suggestions
A template parameter can be described as:
3) The vector size limit is now controled by BOOST_TYPEOF_LIMIT_SIZE. If it
is bigger than BOOST_MPL_LIMIT_VECTOR_SIZE, the additional vector
definitions are generated automatically (using the method suggested and
explained by Aleksey Gurtovoy).
(There appears to be one more limitation that I wasn't aware of. It is
related to the max number of template parameters allowed by the compiler.
For example, VC7.1 appears to have a limit of 64)
4) All is compiled against current Boost CVS.
Any comments are most welcome.
