I trust it compiles, but since there is no main function, it doesn't
actually do anything, right? I get no executable. Nothing to start
playing with.

I am not looking for something elaborate, but two or three small
applications that just do something and allow me to experiment with a
new library without writing anything from scratch.

IMHO, Boost.Asio has a particularly nice example section with use cases
and working example programs:
