> I am sure that it is a powerful library, but I really have no idea at all what is going on. I can't even parse the first line as valid C++ in any way. You need better examples, and also is that really the best way you could find to express repeating?
If I try to imagine what the interface would look like after taking into
account some of the suggestions that were made, this sentence:
"Create data elements by mapping 1, 10, 100, 1000 by function f, and
insert each result in cont by invoking modifier push_front."
push_front<1>( cont ) % ( _data = f ) % ( _repeat = n )
)( 1, 10, 100, 1000 );
- is it more readable, now?
- What if each example was preceded by its English equivalent. Is this a
bit of stretch or a reasonable approach?
