I am interested in the library. At the moment I am particularly interested
in the ptime <--> chrono conversions (there isn't functionality for that
elsewhere in Boost, is there?), but the library as a whole seems
interesting and useful.
By the way, I have a question about the ptime <--> chrono conversions.
In this stackoverflow question , the implementation of these conversions
is suggested as a way to implement ptime <--> std::chrono conversions, and
Howard Hinnant points out in a comment to the accepted answer that this
implementation silently returns incorrect results if the clock's epoch is
not the same as ptime's.
I am wondering, is your implementation susceptible to this problem, or can
you somehow assume more about the epoch of a boost::chrono clock than you
could about the epoch of an std::chrono clock?
In case your implementation does have this problem, Howard also suggests a
solution in another comment.
