I met some of you on the list at this years ACCU conference in Oxford.
However, I forgot to ask something I might supply to boost. I have a
long experience with writing and using iostream adapters for TCP-sockets
(in 24x7 production servers written in C++). A quick look at boost seems
to me that this part of IO is lacking.
My current solution is not yet fit for inclusion into boost, because it
is still using "legacy" C++ and requires some infrastructure from
another foundation library (mine :-). However, I'd like to modernize
that library and the surrounding MT-server-framework in the future.
If such a work (sockt-iostream) could go into boost, I would be happy to
use boost as a new foundation for my framework.
I'd like to hear,
a) if there is interest in iostream for sockets
b) if there is already a solution pending for inclusion (to review it)
c) if there are people working on it who I might join
Thanks for giving me some answer encouring me to work on that topic...:-)
