Comparing C++ LINQ APIs

Jan 17, 2015 at 1:24 AM

It's been a little while since Erik Meijer and Aaron Lahman and folks were working on what looked like a promising LINQ API in the C++ world. Also in the same breath, apparently an Rx / observable-collections variant, but that's neither here nor there at the moment.

To anyone's knowledge, did this vanish into the research ether? Or is it available, I could find it and give it a try?

Of course, there's also this API, which I think I may have a look at.

Thank you...

IIRC RX contains a LINQ for C++ library called lx. However, I don't know if it's maintained anymore.

cpplinq was actually created a reaction to lx because lx doesn't allow for extensions.

Good to know. Thank you for the history lesson.

Any plans to go 'reactive' with this as well? Might be interesting to extend somehow, with futures or something, I don't know...

Also, to be fair, I don't know if they've worked out extensibility features. At least one video I saw, seems to indicate they might have been working on that. To what extent, I cannot say.

I have done some experimentations with a push scheme as opposed to to pulll but haven't completed. FYI; C++11 has futures/promises.

Re: C++1y, I do know this. Tis why I asked. ;-)
