Hi Ding and welcome to Boost

Which functional language do you know?

There is no implied dependencies on any Boost library. Of course, there
is no need to reinvent the wheel.
However at least the library must provide mapping for boost/std::future,
boost::optional and the on going boost::expected classes between others.

Mapping to containers could be provided in order to check for the
ability to configure it, but it is not mine main goal for the library.

Been able to understand the implementation of the Pure library is a
must. (
Please take a look at it a let me know how do you fill with this kind of
I would appreciate if you can give you impression of the library, what
you like, what you would change, any additional feedback ....
