Boost..

P: n/a
Ok, i need someone to tell me why to use this library that dont even seem
to want to compile 3 out of 5 times :P

You have to freeze the version with the release, that should make problems
as you make new versions of the program im sure you want to be able to
update as much as posible in the maner to just put a new version in and
recompile, couse if you have to freeze it it atleast to me says something
... no standard, crappy lib ...

But im sure its good in its ways but .. who would want something that
forces you to change your code after each upgrade? :/

Thanks for any answers.

As I understand it, the idea of Boost is to create libraries that fill a
need and may some day become part of the C++ standard. As such it represents
the "bleeding edge" of C++ development. If you want something stable and
standardised, then I think you are looking in the wrong place. Of course,
part of your problem may be with the degree of standard compliance of your
compiler.
