Subject: Re: [boost] Boost Asio io_service as global?

My question is relevant to Boost Asio in the sense that I was wondering as
to whether there are any specific reasons not to make the io_service object
in particular, global. If this is not the case, which is to say no special
reasons not to make io_service in particular global, then you are right; it
is a design question and I then have nothing further to enquire about.

Kind regards,

Philip Bennefall

your question is not relevant to boost::asio. You question is a design

Should a frequent-accessed variable being global?

My taste to your question is: I don't like global variable, so I would like
to pass the reference around.
