Hi All The Egg review has run for 2 weeks now with zero reviews, which is obviously disappointing. There has been some good and pretty thorough discussion, and a couple of promises of reviews. As such, I'm extending the review period by 1 week until 20th April 2008. Please do post a review if you have any interest in this library. In case anybody is unsure, in the case of zero votes being posted, the default result will be a rejection. Please lets make sure we don't have to fall through to this default case. Introduction: It is not so easy to define Function Objects especially if you want to support Boost.ResultOf and Boost.Lambda. Therefore, as Boost provides iterator_facade and iterator adaptors, Egg provides function_facade and function adaptors. Egg provides the following features: * Workaround for the Forwarding Problem * Helpers to build Function Objects: * egg::function and egg::function_facade provides the way to build Function Objects which supports Boost.ResultOf and Lambda. * Function Objects Adaptors(in other words, higher-order functions): * egg::curryN supports the currying. * egg::pipable emulates extension methods(C#). * egg::fuse/unfuse emulates variadic functions. * egg::nestN represents nested lambda expressions. * etc... The documentation is on line: The zipped source code is in Vault/FunctionObjects: Tested under: Boost Development Trunk and Boost Version1.34.1. --------------------------------------------------- Please always state in your review, whether you think the library should be accepted as a Boost library! Additionally please consider giving feedback on the following general topics: - What is your evaluation of the design? - What is your evaluation of the implementation? - What is your evaluation of the documentation? - What is your evaluation of the potential usefulness of the library? - Did you try to use the library? With what compiler? Did you have any problems? - How much effort did you put into your evaluation? A glance? A quick reading? In-depth study? - Are you knowledgeable about the problem domain?
