I think a more general approach would be a Boost.Rangestyle range
adaptor [1] that presents a view of the range where elements in
the view are pairs of (references to, if desired) elements in the
underlying range. You can then use standard algorithms like for_each
and transform on the adapted range.
I have written such an adaptor in the past and called it
'adjacent_paired'. I've also seen (can't remember where) the name
'windowed' used for the more general version which presents a view
of tuples of N adjacent elements.
