Yes, as far as this example shows. I haven't look at other examples;
however, I've coded this range idea myself just using something
derived from pair<iterator,iterator>. There's was something
already in boost that had ranges; however, I couldn't use it for
some reason. I've also seen ranges coded elsewhere (in the polaris
compiler at uiuc). If it's occurring so often, maybe it's worth
having a library.
Also, could someone tell me the reason for having, I believe
Thorsten's, range library as well as this one? I've found
the Thorsten's hard to use because it doesn't have a dereference
function or advance function. How can these operations be done
on ranges in that library?
