Translation Bar

At least 50% of the visitors to this web site do not speak English as a first language. I have placed a Google Translation box on the left. Hopefully this will help make it easier to understand.

However, I realize that the translations it gives aren't very good - especially when it tries to translate source code. Don't misunderstand me - the Google software is quite impressive, but this is the type of text where a native speaker (who is also a programmer) is needed for a good translation.

If you would like to provide translations of any of the documentation content, I will post it here. The most important parts are the first two tutorials.

Download Options

There are a few different ways to install Boost.Extension and Boost.Reflection.

I've provided a download, to the left here, that includes both Boost.Extension, Boost.Reflection, and all Boost libraries needed for the examples and tests.

But, if you have Boost installed, you don't need all the other libraries, so feel free to just copy the boost/extension or boost/reflection directories to your Boost tree instead.

If you want to always stay up to date with the latest changes, you can also get the libraries directly from the Boost Sandbox using Subversion:

svn co http://svn.boost.org/svn/boost/sandbox/boost/reflection
svn co http://svn.boost.org/svn/boost/sandbox/boost/extension

Let me know if you have problems installing or compiling on any system.

Also, as a note, the libraries themselves are header-only.
