be wrong.

Open firing range...

I've got 70 items on the STLSoft todo list. Maybe I can check them for ones suitable for your efforts.
     Of course, I won't get around to doing anything until I finish the

 my sourceforge project tasks, web site, conio.h-equivalent *NIX header,
 Win32 floppy raw-writer...*fades off into babbling*

Hmmm. Best do all those first, then, eh? :)

To be serious, though, the libraries are crying out for some regression
tests.

Any of them you could write'd be much appreciated.
:)

Ha Matt, maybe I should resubmit my post as: "...I'm sittin' here wanting to beat my keyboard up with some _fun_ code..." But jokes aside, that is rather important. We must talk further about what should be exptected from them though. -- -Gregory Peet Newsgroup FAQ: http://stlsoft.gregpeet.com Golden Rule of Open-Source Programming: "Don't whine about something unless you are going to implement it yourself."

I'll try and knock one up later in the week for one of the classes as an
example, and then you can take than and run for the others.

My feeling is that we can achieve a high degree of rigour for stlsoft
namespace components, e.g. fixed_array, but it will be harder to achieve
for, say, winstl::findfile_sequence, since one cannot guarantee the contents
of a filesystem as an invariant of the test. (That's not to say that we
cannot come up with useful stuff nonetheless.)

Remind me later in the week if I've not got back to you with an example.
(I'm thinking auto_buffer as a first one)
