Skipping boost and stl libraries while debugging

This trick will allow you to step over boost and stl functions when debugging. It will not allow you to step into any of that stuff. Yippee.
The downside is that if you want to follow where a boost::signal ends up, you won’t be able to unless you already know where it’s going.

  1. Create a file called: boost_stl.natstepfilter
  2. Dump contents below into it.
  3. Put that file into your “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\Packages\Debugger\Visualizers” directory.
