Subject: [boost] [test] Use of snprintf
From: Mateusz Loskot (mateusz_at_[hidden])

I'm testing Boost with Comeau C/C++ frontent which,
as far as I found, does not support mixing C++ and C99 modes.
So, compiling Boost.Test library fails because ::snprintf
can not be found [1].

I could not find any guidelines regarding use of elements of C99 in
Boost libraries (are there any?). Scanning Boost libraries for
snprintf shows that it's not widely used, but only in 3 files:


Would it make sense to remove use of snprintf?
