|C++ Boost Libraries Resource Center|
Welcome to the C++ Boost Libraries Resource Center. The C++ Boost Libraries are a set of open source, peer-reviewed portable C++ source libraries. The libraries work well with the existing C++ Standard Library. Some have been included in the C++ Standards Committee’s Library Technical Report (TR1) as possible additions to the C++ Standard. This Resource Center explores the C++ Boost Libraries information available online, including downloads, articles, tutorials, wikis, FAQs, books, sample chapters, projects and more.
