Boost Library

KPB
If I were to post code here that included stuff from *boost*, would the
code get gigged for non-StdC++ compliance.

I would think yes but maybe *boost* is a bit of a gray area on this NG.

Thanks,

Read the FAQ to decide if your post is on topic. If, as you say, your code
"included stuff from boost" that would not be a problem. But if your
question was just about the the boost library and had nothing to do with
standard C++ that would be off topic.

Thanks.

The FAQ gives a mention about boost and where to get it but doesn't
state any more than that.

My understanding is that when posting code, I should post the minimum
amount that compiles. I just wanted to make sure I could get away
including a boost file now and then.

If you've questions concerning boost libraries and there application you can
join the boost mailing list(s). See the Mailing Lists and newsgroups heading
on the left of the main boost.org web page. While you'll get good answers
here, your more likely to get help from the library authors on the mailing
lists.
