  Boost C++ Libraries
  Submitted by



Maybe this is old news to some, but I recently found out about Boost. Boost is a repository of free, portable, peer-reviewed C++ libraries. It acts as a proving ground for new libraries, some of which may eventually be proposed for addition to the ISO C++ Standard Library. Some of the libraries are:

  • Conversion: Numeric, polymorphic, and lexical casts.
  • CRC.
  • Memory Pool management.
  • Static (compile time) assert.
  • Tokenizer.
  • Quaterion math library.
  • Special math functions like atanh, sinc, and sinhc.
  • Regular expressions.
  • Smart pointers.


  • If you are used to working with the STL, I think Boost is a very cool collection of libraries that handle a number of common, recurring tasks.

    Download Boost from ftp://boost.sourceforge.net/pub/boost/release/

    The zip file viewer built into the Developer Toolbox made use of the zlib library, as well as the zlibdll source additions.
