Re: [csmith-dev] Floating-point support in csmith

At one time, we used a Boost library to parsing command-line options.  John
(maybe with help from you/Yang?) removed that dependency by rewriting the
option-parsing code.

This was long enough ago that I've forgotten what, if anything, we lost when we
rolled our own option-parsing code.

Anyway, I have to admit that I haven't looked to see how much code is contained
in the Boost libraries used by the code that uses intervals to represent
floats.  So I don't know if it would be easy/make sense to copy the relevant
headers into the Csmith source tree or not.
