When we look at the following declaration :
template<typename SequenceSequenceT, typename RangeT, typename PredicateT>
SequenceSequenceT& split(SequenceSequenceT & Result, RangeT & Input,
PredicateT Pred, token_compress_mode_type eCompress = token_compress_off);
Anyone knows why split() takes the input type by reference and not by const
The current design prevents, say, passing a temporary string to split which
is imho something not convenient.
I'd want to be able to do code like :
string input = "/foo/bar";
split(tokens, input.substr(1), token_compress_off);
Thank you for your answers.
