Project Release Information
This release changes the manner in which integer string forms is evaluated (now in terms of STLSoft's integral_printf_traits<>), to simplify definitions and fix a defect (found on I32LP64 systems). It adds a makefile for GCC 4.7. It adds fastformat.core.vcxproj (VC++ 10). It changes core source files to include new src/ximpl_core.hpp. It adds various unit/component tests. It bundles shwild 0.9.20 and xTests 0.16.5; and depends on STLSoft 1.9.112.
This release adds three new inserters: fastformat::character and overloads of fastformat::to_i() for LARGE_INTEGER and ULARGE_INTEGER. A HOW_YOU_CAN_HELP.txt file was added to the distribution, along with a new example (example.sink.c_string) and a large number of trivial/minor renaming of internal components to aid consistency.
fastformat/fastformat.hpp now includes fastformat/sinks/ostream.hpp by default, unless FASTFORMAT_LEAN_AND_MEAN is specified. A new example, example.pad.hash, was added. Finally, the FastFormat headers now require STLSoft 1.9.104, which is needed for improved compatibility with some compilers.
This version includes some minor fixes and a new example program illustrating fastformat::flush(). It depends on STLSoft 1.9.102.
This release adds a fastformat::flush() function, a sink_exception class (abstract) and sink_output_exception exception classes, and to_i_null_if_not(), to_i_null_if_zero(), and to_i_null_if_0() inserter functions. It also includes substantial improvements to documentation and sink robustness, along with some minor optimizations and several new performance and component test programs.
FastFormat is a C/C++ output and formatting library whose design parameters are complete type-safety, efficiency, genericity, and extensibility. It is simple to use and extend, highly portable (to any platform or compiler), and it upholds the C tradition of you only pay for what you use. FastFormat supports output and formatting of statements of arbitrary complexity, consisting of heterogeneous types. FastFormat writes to output "sinks", which can be of arbitrary type.
