Is not the Readme on the front of the github for
https://github.com/ned14/boost-lite not clear?
If you do write a small program using both CXXD and boost-lite you'll
surely notice the many APIs not covered by boost-lite e.g. all of
<tuple>. My coverage is extremely conservative and incomplete to
prevent interop surprises. My approach also only works for C++ 11
compilers, I deliberately exclude 03 usage so things like move
construction don't surprise.
Nevertheless, it provides everything I need for my own libraries to
dispense with the mandatory Boost dependency, which is its primary
purpose. You're attempting something much more ambitious in CXXD.
