[Boost-announce] [Review] Formal review of Fixed Strings library starts today

Hartmut Kaiser

Hi all,

The review of the proposed Boost Fixed Strings library written by Reece Dunn
starts today (January 19th, 2006) and ends January 28th, 2006.

You can download the library here: http://tinyurl.com/czrh9 

---------------------------------------------------
About the library:

The fixed_strings library is a buffer-overrun safe version of using
fixed-size character array data buffers. It provides integration with the C
API allowing strcpy, et. al. to be used safely for a fixed string and
provides a basic_string interface allowing easy migration to C++ strings.
There is also a formatter function object allowing (w)sprintf to be used in
a single line!

Example:
   boost::fixed_string< 5 > hi;
   strcpy( hi, "Hello World" );
   hi.push_back( '!' );
   std::cout << hi << std::endl;
   std::cout << boost::formatter( "Meine %s Welt!", "kleine" ) << std::endl;

output:
   Hello
   Meine kleine Welt!

---------------------------------------------------

Please always state in your review, whether you think the library should be
accepted as a Boost library!

Additionally please consider giving feedback on the following general
topics:

- What is your evaluation of the design?
- What is your evaluation of the implementation?
- What is your evaluation of the documentation?
- What is your evaluation of the potential usefulness of the library?
- Did you try to use the library?  With what compiler?  Did you have any
problems?
- How much effort did you put into your evaluation? A glance? A quick
reading? In-depth study?
- Are you knowledgeable about the problem domain?

Regards Hartmut
