Ah man, I just got it working with GSList and boost looks like a
breakfast of spaghetti code. Do I /have/ to use boost or can std::list
do the job too? (not example in the code of boost::ptr_list, very unsafe
to try and implement)
I'm not sure what you mean by boost::ptr_list being unsafe.
boost::ptr_list<T> works almost exactly like a
std::list<std::unique_ptr<T>>, but iterators dereference to object
boost::intrusive::list allows you to compute an iterator to the
element from the element itself in constant time, so it is very useful
if an object needs to remove itself from the list.
