C++ Question

Is there any technical/conceptual reason boost::circular_buffer does not support move symantics?

I want to fill a boost::circular_buffer with unique_ptrs but i don't find any "emplace" function or any && arguments in any functions in the public interface. Is there any particular reason circular_buffer can't support move that I'm missing?

Thanks to https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/ticket/7888 this is now implemented in Boost. It seems the original implementation was in 1.55, with some fixes for compiler warnings in 1.57.

There is, however, still no support for emplace(), emplace_front(), or emplace_back() as of Boost 1.63. For that effort, see https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/ticket/9299.
