About half a year ago, I took on the range_ex library from Thorsten
Ottosen, aiming to make it ready for review and inclusion in boost.
However, a few weeks later I found myself with a 'life' (i.e.
girlfriend), so there hasn't been time for any outside-of-work hacking.
I feel that range_ex deserves to be completed and would love to do it
myself, but time just isn't there at the moment.
range_ex is mostly just a range-ification of <numeric> and <algorithm>
(i.e. versions of these functions taking Ranges rather iterator pairs)
and I've been using a something similar at work. It really makes good
sense to have it in boost.
If anyone is willing to step up to this, let me or Thorsten know. There
isn't much work really (most of it is there, just fill in the gaps, make
it complete and edit a bit of the documentation). There are a few
advanced features that definitely are worth pursuing in the future, but
I believe a first barebone release would still improve the life of many
c++ hackers. :)
So, let us know if you're interested.
