>From the original announcement...
The review period for Scope Exit Time Series, submitted by Alexander
Nasonov, runs from Monday, August 13 until Wednesday, August 22.
>From the documentation:
Nowadays, every C++ developer is familiar with RAII technique. It binds
resource acquisition and release to initialization and destruction of a
variable that holds the resource. But there are times when writing a
special class for such variable is not worth the effort.
This is when ScopeExit macro comes into play. You put resource
acquisition directly in your code and next to it you write a code that
releases the resource.
Note that ScopeExit uses PP macros and relies on Boost.Typeof.
