Subject: [boost] Adding cstdfloat.hpp - wheres the best place?
From: John Maddock (john_at_[hidden])

Christopher Kormanyos has coded up a version of cstdfloat.hpp for
This header is proposed for C++14, and the C language folks are doing
something similar: it provides similar functionality for floating point
types that <cstdint> does for integer types:
BOOST_FLOATN_C(x) // floating point constant of width N.
Where N is one of 16, 32, 64, 128 and correspond to the IEEE half, single,
double and quad types respectively.
So... the question is where to best place this?
Does anyone object if it goes under boost/cstdfloat.hpp to sit alongside
Where should it best be documented and tested? We can obviously add it
under the Math lib, but is there a better more "discoverable" place?
cstdint.hpp is under integer BTW so it can't go there ;-)
Thanks in advance, John.
