Cheap booze and C++

We drank cheap sparkling wine the other day. When I say cheap, I mean 0.87 euro for a bottle. That's 1.34 CAD at the current rate.

I am also hacking on a modern C++ implementation of property lists. I am also getting rather hooked by some aspects of Boost. The binder is astonishingly clever and asio looks very promising. I'm also told their boost::function does not use a virtual method (unlike my attempt, WvCallback), which I'll have to look into.

No, there is no relation between the drinking and the hacking. :-P

I remember giving asio a thorough looking over and being disappointed for some reason. :-(

Your link to property lists is currently broken. Is there a better one where I could figure out what concept you're talking about?

Do you remember the reason? Because if it's halfway decent and it eventually gets into the C++ standard library, it'd make my life a whole lot easier in general... Wishful thinking, maybe, still haven't had time to look it over.

I replaced the link with one to the Wikipedia, should work better. :-)

Also, note that I am referring to the classic property lists, not the foul XML ones that Apple came up with. Users of Window Maker might be familiar with them, and I showed/discussed some examples of that here:
