This is more of an addition to your list, but I think adding
the | operator for getting the optional value or a default value would be nice.
optional<double> safe_sqrt(double x)
if (x < 0) return none;
else return sqrt(x);
double x = safe_sqrt(4) | 0; //x = 4
double y = safe_sqrt(-1) | 0; //y = 0
I dont know if this is possible for tr2, but would be really nice
addition in the future. Especially, since a lot of times i just
want a default value if the optional value doesn't exist.
