Subject: [Boost-users] [multi_array] How to specify degenerate at runtime?
From: Anton Daneyko (self_at_[hidden])

Greetings to Boosters,

I have a 3D multi_array and I would like to make 2D slices using dimensions
specified at runtime. I know the index of degenerate dimension and an index
of slice, that I want to extract in that degenerate dimension. Currently
the ugly workaround looks like that:
    if (0 == degenerate_dimension)
        Slice slice =
    else if (1 == degenerate_dimension)
        Slice slice =
    else if (2 == degenerate_dimension)
        Slice slice =

Is there a more beautiful way to construct index_gen object?
Something like that:
    var slicer;
    for(int i = 0; i < 3; ++i) {
        if (degenerate_dimension == i)
            slicer = boost::indices[slice_index];
            slicer = boost::indices[range()];
    Slice slice = input_array[slicer];

It seems each subsequent call to boost::indices::operator[] returns a
different type depending on the dimensionality, so there's no way to use a
single variable, that can hold the temporary index_gen object.
