In a hobby project, I am using Spirit Karma generators. As far as I have
understood Spirit Karma, it is not designed to work lazily in the iterator
based interface. It takes an output iterator and writes to it until it has

What I am thinking of is a kind of generating range. E.g.:

for(auto& char:
        generator_range(double_ << " + " << double_ << "i",
                        context, c.real(), c.imag())) {
   // do whatever with the single characters returned by the generator

Is there something like that, which I simply have not found?

You should be able to build that with Boost.Coroutine. Launch the Karma
generator in a pull_type coroutine, which accepts a (corresponding)
push_type coroutine as its argument. A push_tyoe coroutine can be used as
an output iterator. Pass that iterator to Karma, and then lazily retrieve
characters from the pull_type coroutine.
