This library provides basic building blocks for constructing non-trivial template metaprograms. The main things the library provides for template metaprogramming:
The library provides metafunctions for the monadic operations, that can be overridden. The library implements an embedded domain specific language based on Haskell's do notation for monads. Template metaprograms using it are easier to read and to maintain. Even though the library was built based on Haskell, developers can use it without knowing the Haskell language.
The library implements an error handling mechanism for template metaprograms that is similar to exception handling in runtime code. The library calls this technique compile-time exception handling and it is based on monads.
