But I spend a lot of time trying to understand this boost.spirit, without a lot of rewards, so I am asking this question : who this framework is made for ? For high graded computer scientist of the average programmer (I consider myself as a average programmer) ?

Wrapping your head around Spirit can be daunting. It combines expression templates, type traits, parsing concepts, etc. Whether that's more than you can grasp only you can say.

However, this list is for discussions on the development and maintenance of Boost libraries. It is not for teaching or explaining C++ or Boost libraries.
