Forgive me the delay, but I would like to submit my library. I realize
that I did not communicate sufficiently with you. I apologize for my
apparent disinterest, it was unintentional. For the past 16 or so
months, I have been essentially working two jobs. As you can imagine,
my spare time has become virtually non-existent. Nonetheless, the
library is ready for the mini-review, except that I am only able to
compile and test it with Visual Studio Express as at the present time I
do not have access to a different compiler. I have uploaded to the Boost Vault. Will someone compile it for me with a
different compiler/platform? If so, and if the library compiles, then I
request the mini-review of the uuid library.
