The comprehensiveness of this library would not be possible without the existence of the indispensable resource that is the Pre-defined C/C++ Compiler Macros Project. It was, and continues to be, the primary source of the definitions that make up this library. Thanks to Bjorn Reese and all the volunteers that make that resource possible.

This library would be an incoherent mess if it weren't for Boost community that provided invaluable feedback for the eight years that it took to polish into a useable form. In particular I would like to thank: Mathias Gaunard, Robert Stewart, Joël Lamotte, Lars Viklund, Nathan Ridge, Artyom Beilis, Joshua Boyce, Gottlob Frege, Thomas Heller, Edward Diener, Dave Abrahams, Iain Denniston, Dan Price, Ioannis Papadopoulos, and Robert Ramey. And thanks to Joel Falcou for managing the review of this library.
