Yes, this is what I meant. My bad. However, I still think it is not a
really user-friendly way of making that code available. I'd prefer a
more "standard" style of tutorial, where you can just copy/paste code
from the webpage as you go, and into a source file not Metashell.
However, this is a non technical point and I'd rather not lose time
over it since I'm satisfied with the overall tutorial.

Well, I use ad-hoc scripts too, but they are pretty cool because everything
can be controlled from CMake and they generate Javascripts charts that can
be embedded in the HTML documentation :-). Also, my benchmarks are run on
Travis and pushed to a special branch on GitHub whenever I push to master,
which is handy for keeping them up to date. I'll try to send you a pull
request setting up the basic system, but that might have to wait until the
end of my own review. Also, what will happen with the CMake-based build
system in the new Metaparse repository?
