Into the Future!

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

Triggered by the announcement that boost will soon include futures, I sat down to write a quick implementation myself. Yes, I know, it’s kind of stupid to do something that boost/c++0x will include very soon anyway.

But given that futures are conceptually like a mixture of read-only properties mixed with a subset of the tasklet-functionality, it was just a no-brainer to write them.

So there you are.

Follow the jump for a quick example on how to use them.

Fhtagn! on Windows

Sunday, April 19th, 2009

Over the weekend, I managed to improve the SCons build and fix two or three minor issues in the code, with the result that Fhtagn!’s testsuite now also compiles and passes on Windows.

This does by no means imply that all the work for making sure Fhtagn! runs on windows is done, though. But it’s a major milestone — and vindicates my assumption that the code is fairly portable!

Enjoy!

Finally, here’s a partial list of things left to do:

  • The allocspeed test program doesn’t link yet.
  • There are hundreds of compiler warnings, some of which could probably be fixed.
  • You can’t build static and dynamic libs — either one at a time works, but not both.
