<p>Special thanks to:</p>
<blockquote> 
  <p> <b>Paul Mensonides</b> for his invaluable help while developing the macro 
    expansion engine and his insightful tips. He developed the recursive macro 
    expansion algorithm implemented herein and also contributed most of the small 
    testcases used for testing the correctness of the macro expansion.</p>
  <p><b>Dan Nuffer</b>, who wrote the initial Re2C based C++ lexer and the Slex 
    (Spirit Lex) scanner generator sample.</p>
  <p><b>Martin Wille</b> for helping with the port to linux and for contributing 
    the automated test scripts.</p>
  <p><b>Vladimir Prus</b> for helping with the command line and config file options 
    analysis fro the <tt>Wave</tt> driver executable.</p>
  <p><b>Juan Carlos Arevalo-Baeza</b>, who wrote the Spirit cpp_lexer sample, 
    from which are taken some ideas.</p>
</blockquote>
<p>and last but not least </p>
<blockquote>
  <p><b>Joel de Guzman</b> for nudging me into this adventure and for his work 
    on the <tt>Spirit</tt> parser framework, without which the <tt>Wave</tt> library 
    wouldn't have been possible.</p>
</blockquote>
<p>The <tt>Wave</tt> library uses the following <tt>Boost</tt> <a href="references.html#boost">[8]</a> 
  libraries:</p>
<blockquote> 
  <p><b><img src="theme/bullet.gif" width="13" height="13" id="IMG1"></b>&nbsp;Boost 
    Spirit (LL parser framework that represents parsers directly as EBNF grammars 
    in inlined C++)<br>
    <b><img src="theme/bullet.gif" width="13" height="13" id="IMG1"></b> Boost 
    Iterator Adaptor Library (Adapt a base type into a standard conforming iterator)<br>
    <b><img src="theme/bullet.gif" width="13" height="13" id="IMG1"></b> Boost 
    Filesystem Library (Portable paths, iteration over directories, and other 
    useful filesystem operations)<br>
    <b><img src="theme/bullet.gif" width="13" height="13" id="IMG1"></b>&nbsp;Program 
    options and arguments library (currently under <tt>Boost</tt> review)</p>
</blockquote>
<p>and other small parts of different <tt>Boost</tt> libraries. </p>
