I'd like to propose adding a template function to shared_ptr to allow the
automatic testing of a shared_ptr to its raw ptr.
The template is as simple as
template <class T>
bool operator==(boost::shared_ptr<T> const & a, T * const & b)
return a.get() == b;
Here is the case where I need it.
I have a vector<Foo> myFoo.
In a method of Foo I need to see if this instance is in the vector. I want
to do this
vector<Foo>::iterator iter = find( myFoo.begin(), myFoo.end(), this );
