Boost is rather huge, and there are a number of libraries there that probably won't be very useful in Code Jam (e.g. Boost.Asio, Boost.System). Personally I don't use Boost for previous years' Code Jam rounds, but some of the template-heavy algorithm libraries might help, such as the stuff in boost::geometry. However, for C++, it would be good if the -std=c++17 flag can be used instead of -std=c++11, even though GCC/libstdc++ is not C++17 feature-complete. It can be quite annoying when standard C++ code that compiles on GCC on my computer doesn't compile on the server. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Google Code Jam" group.
