> I know nothing about that data structure but what Wikipedia tells me. There I noted two things. First, the data structure is similar to an internal tree, which makes me wonder how it compares to Boost.ICL[1]. Second, they say it's immutable, but you mentioned updating it.

I looked at the Wikipedia article, it seems that there are two data

The segment tree described in Wikipedia is indeed similar to an
interval tree, the segment tree I'm talking about is described here:
