Subject: Re: [boost] [RPC] Compile-time reflection for RPC and mocking

   Ok I promised yesterday short explanation of RPC implementation in hl
please see attachment, it's short demonstration how we can make first step
to implement custom RPC approach. Obviously we should implement backend
(similar JsonBackend) and your compile time reflection based RPC on your
custom format will works ..^) Short time and very quick
   Please download hl library, and make project able to compile, I guiess
we can use more specific files, but it need more time to make that.

   Please be informed that this approach enable make full information about
functions signatures, name of arguments and types which registered in the
RPC system during compile time. Therefore you can choose any manipulation
for your personal data inside RPC system, maps, compiletime lists, maps
bindings, lambda, with classes <> without classes factory, futures. It's
abstract layer of compiletime reflection based RPC.

    The are two lines below is quintessence of approach

    typedef hl::manual_extract<impl::Services>::type services;
    typedef hl::refl_extract<impl::interface_first::ftbl >::type functions;

   Mb\ backend part of hl_ipc is difficult to understanding and using, I'll
hope we can discuss how it can be improved.

As I remember my first explanation was here

P.S. Currenlty I use chrom GUI for send email, and I don't know which
messages can be overkvoted
