...one of the most highly
regarded and expertly designed C++ library projects in the
world. — Herb Sutter and Andrei
It is not uncommon for various common errors or guideline violations to creep into the Boost libraries. The inspect program detects and reports several common problems. It can be used to scan a proposed Boost submission to identify various failures.
The inspect program is written in C++ to limit tool chain dependencies, and should be portable to any system.
The program is run in the directory to be scanned for errors. Sub-directories are also included in the scan.
If the first program argument is
-help, a usage message is
displayed, showing all available program options.
The program sources include:
A Jamfile is provided to build the program using Boost.Build.
A Microsoft Visual Studio solution file is provided to aid maintenance. See readme.txt before using it.
