> I don't know whether you chose auto_ptr or unique_ptr, but in this case you should choose based upon which is less likely to increase application size since both otherwise suffice. Â Using unique_ptr for io_service will increase code size unless the client already does the same, but as that is more likely than their using auto_ptr for io_service, at least in the future, using unique_ptr is probably wiser. Â (If any standard library implementation were to use a void * implementation to share non-dependent code in unique_ptr, the code size could still be reduced if the client uses unique_ptr but not for io_service.)
My thinking was more guided by what's generally available now. Barring
a Boost.Unique_ptr, I'm sticking with std::auto_ptr in the meantime.
Once a Boost.Unique_ptr is generally distributed with Boost, I'll
switch to that instead. :)
So far all tests seem to be unaffacted -- those that matter pass --
and I'm going to be adding more tests to see if the user-provided
io_service works as expected.
