array is a sequence

Reported by: akrzemi1 Owned by: Raffi Enficiaud
Milestone: Boost 1.65.0 Component: test
Version: Boost 1.59.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:


According to docs of Boost.Test v3, a C-array is not recognized as a sequence, and cannot be used with sequence-based test assertions. I think it is an unjustified limitation.

Instead of requiring that type T should have member functions .begin(), .size(), use the approach taken by Boost.Foreach, and only require of ranges, that the following expressions are valid:

boost::begin(e), boost::end(e)

There is no need to require size(), one can always compute it from std::distance(begin(e), end(e)).
