Have you tried the binary version of fusion::transform described at:
You'll need a polymorphic function object wrapping std::min(unless
fusion has an adapter), something like(untested):
struct PolyMin
{
template<typename T> struct result
{
typedef typename boost::remove_const<
typename boost::remove_reference<T>::type>::type type;
};
template<typename T> T operator()(const T& lhs, const T& rhs) const
{ return (std::min)(lhs, rhs); }
};
