The Boost formal review of Krystian Stasiowski and Vinnie Falco's
FixedString library starts today
November 25 and extends up to December 4.


FixedString provides a dynamically resizable string of characters with
compile-time fixed capacity
and contiguous embedded storage in which the characters are placed
within the string object
itself. Its API closely resembles that of std::string.

Review questions

Here are some questions you might want to answer in your review:
 Â  - What is your evaluation of the design?
 Â  - What is your evaluation of the implementation?
 Â  - What is your evaluation of the documentation?
 Â  - What is your evaluation of the potential usefulness of the library?
 Â  - Did you try to use the library?  With what compiler?  Did you have
any problems?
 Â  - How much effort did you put into your evaluation? A glance? A quick
reading? In-depth study?
 Â  - Are you knowledgeable about the problem domain?

And finally, every review should answer this question:
 Â  - Do you think the library should be accepted as a Boost library?

I invite you to submit your review, either publicly to the developers or
the users lists,
or else, if for whatever reason you don't want to go public, directly to me.
Thank you for investing your time on reviewing Krystian and Vinnie's
work and for
contributing to the advancement of Boost.

Best regards,

Joaquín M López Muñoz
Review manager for candidate Boost.FixedString
