Subject: [boost] Refactoring a library for header-only or linked library?
From: Paul A. Bristow (pbristow_at_[hidden])

I am considering refactoring a (potential Boost) library separating declarations and definitions
into two sets of files with the objective of reducing compilation times and allow it to be used as
header-only or linking with a pre-built library.
Is there is best/Boost way of doing this?
Is there a Boost library that I should use as a model? ASIO?
Should I call the definition files .cpp or .ipp?
Should definition files go in libs/src or in boost/?
How should I control the header-only/library switch?
View and suggestions?
