Thanks for all the comments and ideas:
Dave Gomboc suggests:
David Abrahams and Jeff Flinn noted that 'nibbles' is the
common spelling they have seen. And, personally, I've always
seen a 4-bit entity written as nibble. So possible syntaxes
for the template based solution, in the order they have been
suggested, might be:
On a different note, Matt Calabrese lofted a
BOOST_BINARY_LITERAL( 101 0111 1010 0110 )
This looks way cool. I personally like the way the '::value'
is not required.
So, how does the boost community decide which of the proposals
(template-based or preprocessor-based) to pursue?
Thanks for your consideration.
