Subject: [boost] 'is_palindrome' and 'const char*'
From: Зайцев Александр (zamazan4ik_at_[hidden])

Hello. I have some question about some case for 'is_palindrome' algo.

'is_palindrome' algorithm checks a sequence - if sequence is a palindromeor empty, function returns true, in other cases returns false.

But in case e.g. "a" (is_palindrome("a")) result is false, because "a" = {'a', '\0'}. And maybe this behaviour is unexpected for users.

So... what do you think about it? Should I implement special version for const char* or not?

Best regards, Zaitsev Alexander
