The stack has recently entered a period of deboostification where we slowly transition from boost libraries to their standard library equivalents. As a first step down this road boost smart pointers have been converted (DM-5879) and
boost::array has been replaced with
std::array (DM-4035). If you have C++ code that interacts with the stack, but is not built as part of lsst_distrib you should do the following.
Make these replacements:
boost::scoped_ptr -> std::unique_ptr
boost::shared_ptr -> std::shared_ptr
boost::weak_ptr -> std::weak_ptr
boost::static_pointer_cast -> std::static_pointer_cast
boost::dynamic_pointer_cast -> std::dynamic_pointer_cast
boost::const_pointer_cast -> std::const_pointer_cast
boost::reinterpret_pointer_cast -> std::reinterpret_pointer_cast
boost::enamble_shared_from_this -> std::enable_shared_from_this
and replace all related includes with
boost::array -> std::array
Note that the
ndarray package has not (yet) been converted and if your code interacts with that directly you may need to keep those boost pointers for now.
