    boost libraries

    What are the boost libraries? I know that they are highly portable but what are they like GUI or networking or sound or something like that? Are they good?

    Why not go read a description from their website?

    It covers a multitude of things, however, I don't think sound and GUI are two of those subjects.

    >> Are they good?
    Yes. Most of them are excellent. Many of them will be incorporated into standard C++, which means that at least the interface is considered to be very good by the C++ standards committee. Of course, I believe some of the people working on boost are part of the standards committee, so that would make sense.
