The formal review of Boost.DLL library by Antony Polukhin starts today.
Boost.DLL is a C++98 library for comfortable work with DLL and DSO. Library
provides a portable across platforms way to:
- load libraries at runtime
- import and export any native functions and variables
- make alias names for C++ mangled functions and symbols
- query libraries/objects and executables for sections and exported
- self loading and self querying
- getting program and module location by exported symbol
The documentation can be found at:
and the source can be obtained at:
Please post your reviews on the mailing list and if possible, answer the
- Should the library be accepted?
- How useful is it?
- What's your evaluation of
- How much effort did you put into your evaluation?
- Did you attempt to use the library? On what systems and compilers?
This formal review has a couple of adjustments in place:
- It will run for two calendar weeks, not for 10 days, as a number of people
said 10 days is too little. That said, please try to submit a review during
first week, so that necessary discussion can happen conveniently.
- The documentation site has Google Analytics enabled, which will allow us to
see which pages and navigation paths are most useful for reviewers. No personally
identifiable information will be collected. I will post the data after the review
