Hello Marcus,

I'll check it out thoroughly today. I went over it briefly and noticed
it involves the gbest PSO; maybe I can start with lbest PSO then?

Glad to know that, I'll also look into the idea of using lambdas, and
see if I can come up with a comparison between the two.

Yes, variadic templates seem like the right option for now.

I'll turn off the python bindings and executables and try building
once again. I have been using the DEBUG flag already, so I'll look
into adding swap area next.

Thanks for all the help. I'll begin drafting a proposal in a day or
two. Is there a specific format for the proposal? I went through the
Application Guide; there was no mention of a format, just guidelines
and required content in the proposal. Will a simple Google Doc do?

Thanks and regards,
