Constrained vs. restricted value types

I admit it, I’m lurking on the boost developer mailing list. Most of what’s sent there goes past me, I don’t really feel I have the time to read it all. And sometimes I even post drivel there, usually only to be reminded that I hadn’t paid attention to detail. Such is my lot.

But there was a recent bit of activity on the mailing list that I wanted to share with you, because it was about a constrained value library about to be submitted for review. In the boost world, new libraries are submitted for review, and the results of the review determine whether or not the library is included.

Highly fascinating stuff, if only because Fhtagn! has included pretty much the same functionality for a while now.

If you’re interested in more detail, head over to the orignal article on the Fhtagn! website.
