Agree with all these comments. I came across dtilib via the article in the
October issue of CUJ.
I think ASIO provides the full-blown async solution but there could be a
need for
an iostreams network solution (but not async?) which main benefit would be
the ease of use (not performance).
One thread today proposed such library.
