Description Alex Hornby 2002-10-17 07:08:02 EDT
As a C++ programmer I think that the Boost library would a a good candidate for 

Its particularly good at filling some of the holes in the C++ standard library, 
and is in written in part by some of the C++ standards group.

Its also cross platform, so I can use it without fear that I won't be able to 
run code on Windows.

Let me double in on that. Boost gives me portable threads, a nice python
interface, a top-down parser, etc., etc.
