Thanks for everyone that replied to the query for interest on a
"signal flow" library. I have started incorporating the feedback and
expanding the documentation into a more formalized notion of a Signal
Network library, which I would like to propose for Google Summer of
Code / Boost.
http://dancinghacker.com/code/signet/ holds a draft of the
proposal/documentation - the current implementation with
examples/tests is available for download from that page. It should
work with both Boost.Signals and Frank's thread_safe_signals (thanks
for that patch Frank it worked) for the most part.
Some of the improvements are:
* better choice of operators / syntax
* modular components for storage and flow control of signals
* started implementing support for threading
* prototype of a predefined topology (chain)
* ... and more....
If you have any comments / requests / suggestions on the proposal
and/or the library, please send me a note (or feel free to post
requests on the SoC wiki :-) )
