Boost :

Recently I came up with a modified version of boost::array that supports
runtime sized arrays.

The current boost::array implementation is great but every now and then
you'll need runtime-sized arrays: it's simply impossible to know everything
compile time.

It is backwards compatible:

       boost::array<int, 10> sarray;

but it can be used this way now:

       boost::array<int> darray(10);

I realize you could simply use std::vector, but sometimes all you want is a
fixed-size array (but sized at runtime). Besides, I am not sure about the
overhead involved with std::vector for these simple scenarios.

Comments welcome,
