OK, here are some suggestions about Nico's array class.
Some of them might have been discussed before. So please
- rangecheck should be private (Does the aggregate
restriction does hold for methods?)
- an array<int, N> should be comparable to a array<short, N>,
so we probably need more templatized versions of operator==,
- an array<int, N> should be comparable to an array<int, M>,
returnig false (I'm not sure of this...)
- sometimes it would be useful to have full grown iterators,
instead of just pointers. (see for example the libstdc++-v3
faq on http://sourceware.cygnus.com/libstdc++/faq/#5_1 )
- Why do you include <iterator>?
- I think Jeremy's right, use mismatch for !=. It's faster.
Furthermore I suggest not making it an aggregate: after
all, if you want a array of 1000 Elements of a class which
has no default constructur, you could get quite busy.
Otherwise it would be possible to have a constructor
array<..>(const T& elem = T())
