c++.announce - Wanted: people to test new MFCSTL array adaptors: CArray_facade and CArray_proxy

Title pretty much says it all.

I've spent the last few days totally rewriting the existing MFCSTL
CArray-family adaptors, and the new classes I've got support a very
large amount of the functionality of std::vector. The CArray_facade 
is
a compile-time adaptor, and the CArray_proxy is a runtime adaptor.
They're both derived - with a little CRTP/SCTP magic - from a common
abstract CArray_adaptor class. (CRTP=Curiously Recurring Template
Pattern; SCTP=Simulated Compile Time Polymorphism)

I'm looking for volunteers to play around with it, and provide
feedback on functionality/correctness/etc.

I've been concurrently writing up the adaptation as a chapter for
"Extended STL" - on which I'm now heavily focused - so it's entirely
possible that salient feedback may find it's way into print. I'm 
also
considering whether I do a write-up in my online column, or an 
article.
Some small additional motivation, then, if such fame lights your 
candle. ;-)

Depending on amount and form (i.e. ng posts vs emails) feedback,
I'll either post an alpha zip here, or will email volunteers
directly

Cheers

Count me in. I can test it under Visual C++ 7.0. So Long... Gabor

Ok, thanks Gabor and Pablo. I suspect you two will easily suffice to 
give this thing a thorough going over. I've already done a 
comprehensive unit-test, so I'm hopeful it works right, but I'm also 
keen to see if I've hit the sweet spot with the feature set.

I'll email a zip to you both, in a few hours.

Cheers

Matthew

Mr. Wilson,
may I ask what are You using for unit-testing? Some in-house solution, or
some open-source solution? In both cases - would You like to give me some
pointer to it in form of an URL. :)

Hi Dejan

The unit-testing framework is one I came up with for STLSoft, rather 
than an external solution. It qualifies as open-source, since all 
the pieces are available in the STLSoft distributions and free for 
people to use, but I've not documented it as yet.

The way it works is that, in the context of the symbol 
STLSOFT_UNITTEST being defined, every header will include a block of 
code that is automatically registered with a unit-tester instance. 
When this instance is invoked to run the tests, all included files 
are tested. Hence, for the internal unit-testing purposes, each 
sub-project consists of

    - a driver program, e.g. unittest/winstl/unittest.cpp, 
containing an invocation of 
stlsoft::unittest::simple_unittest_host::get_host()->test();
    - the implementation for the simple_unittest_host class, 
contained in include/unittest/simple_unittester.cpp
    - several script-generated files that include all the headers 
for a given sub-project, e.g. unittest/winstl/unittest.0.cpp, 
unittest/winstl/unittest.1.cpp, unittest/winstl/unittest.2.cpp, ... 
unittest/winstl/unittest.11.cpp

When compiled in the context of STLSOFT_UNITTEST, these build a 
program that runs _all_ the WinSTL unittests.

If you like, we could have a dialogue in this newsgroup about it, 
which I would then be glad to turn into an FAQ?

Cheers

Matthew

I do not want to disappoint You, but I am neither using, nor intend to use
STLSoft. I just would like to have small unittest framework for my little
c++ framework I am working on, which is based on STDC++ classes and
templates.
Sure, I would gladly participate in any C++ related discussion here, whether
it does, or not, involve STLSoft. :)
