Dear Boost community,
The formal review of JeanHeyd Meneide's out_ptr library starts Sunday, June
and ends on Wednesday, June 26th.
out_ptr is a library for making it easy to interoperate between smart
pointers and traditional C-style initialization and allocation interfaces.
It also enables doing so in a way that allows library authors to opt into
speed optimizations for their smart pointers that give them performance
equivalent to typical C pointers (see benchmarks (
and the Standard C++ proposal for more details).
Online docs can be found here:
The GitHub repository is available here:
Also, there is an associated standards proposal:
