Comment (by Troy Korjuslommi <troykor@…>):

 I can post proper tests and docs once this patch gets some positive
 comments. The comments in this ticket seem sufficient for reviewing the
 patch itself.

 The lexical_cast function doesn't compile with -DBOOST_NO_EXCEPTIONS
 either, and this ticket had no mention of it. I did consider it, but it
 didn't seem to be an concern here. I guess I was wrong. I will see what
 needs to be done.

 The patch against numeric::converter should be developed independently, as
 it's a separate package. Once it works, try_lexical_cast can be modified
 to call it's non throwing function. That's a one line change.

 As I see it, the patch solves the issue at hand. Adding the
 -DBOOST_NO_EXCEPTIONS support and calls to modified numeric::converter can
 be added once the basic functionality is approved.
