Re: Fit review

Boost - Users mailing list
Hi,
maybe it's too late, but I hadn't seen this library before on the boost-users list.

Would you consider a different name ?
In the context of mathematical and statistical analysis, a "fit" is something else entirely - still related to "functions".

Reading that "Fit is a header-only ... library that provides utilities for functions..." I was expecting something quite different ;-)

Anyway, good job with library itself.

Regards,
.Andrea

I have been considering using the name HigherOrderFunctions(or HOF for short), which seems better to describe the library.

Ah good point.
