How the Boost Bind Library Can Improve Your C++ Programs
By Björn Karlsson.
Aug 26, 2005.
The existence of a generalized C++ binder is a tremendously useful
tool when it comes to writing terse, coherent code. It reduces the
number of small function objects created for adapting functions/
function objects, and combinations of functions. Although the
Standard Library already offers a small part of the functionality
found in Boost.Bind, significant improvements can make Boost.Bind the
better choice. In this sample chapter from Beyond the C++ Standard
Library, you'll learn about Boost.Bind's powerful functional
composition features, which provide programmers with great power
without negative effects on maintenance.

Adding an Easy File Save and File Load Mechanism to Your C++ Program
By Jeff Cogswell.
Jul 1, 2005.
Why waste your time figuring out an algorithm for storing things in a
file? And why spend time debugging the code? Let the Boost library do
it for you. Saving your data to your own custom-made file formats is
easy with the help of the Boost serialization templates. Jeff
Cogswell shows you how to save the data and read it back in with ease.

An In-Depth Look at Metafunctions in C++
By Aleksey Gurtovoy, David Abrahams.
 From the Book -- C++ Template Metaprogramming: Concepts, Tools, and
Techniques from Boost and Beyond
Apr 1, 2005.
This chapter looks at a practical example from science and
engineering that can find applications in almost any numerical code.
Along the way, you'll learn some important new concepts and get a
taste of metaprogramming at a high level using the MPL.


P.S. I'm happy to assign articles about boost (or about anything to
do with C++). And yes, I do pay for articles. :-) Contact me
privately if you're interested.
