As a fan of generic programming, it is no surprise that I like this...|
Of course, specializing sw components is, in itself, an old idea. A good intuition can come from McIlroy's sw factories paper (which I think is available on the Net somewhere).
I see that C++ Gems appears a few times in the references. I think I looked at it once and decided not to buy it. But I dodn't remeber why, so I am not sure I am not mistaking it with another book.
Anyone read it, and can rate it?
