Review of IOStreams library:

What is your evaluation of the design?

    The design is sound and offers tremendous potential.

What is your evaluation of the implementation?

    Very good over all. The samples need to be expanded to include Unicode

What is your evaluation of the documentation?

    The documentation is adequate.

What is your evaluation of the potential usefulness of the library?

    Extremely useful. I plan on using it as soon as it becomes available.

Did you try to use the library? With what compiler? Did you have any
problems? Have worked on/with some parts previously.

    Yes. VS2003. No. No.

How much effort did you put into your evaluation?

    The samples were compiled and tested. Compression samples were written
from scratch. A few minor bugs were noted.

Are you knowledgeable about the problem domain?


Do you think the library should be accepted as a Boost library?

    Yes definitely as soon as possible.
