Thanks. You might want to add a test for this as well <nudge>.
While we're at it, this trivial code fails to compile on msvc7.1:
int rg[5] = {};
boost::begin(rg);
Clearly, it's a compiler bug. But the workaround is simple enough. In
range/begin.hpp, the begin() overloads have the following signatures:
template< class T >
typename range_iterator<T>::type begin( T& r )
template< class T >
typename range_iterator<const T>::type begin( const T& r )
If there were defined as follows:
template< class T >
typename range_mutable_iterator<T>::type begin( T& r )
template< class T >
typename range_const_iterator<T>::type begin( const T& r )
... the problem would go away, I think. Same is true for end(), size(),
etc...
