Function Input Iterator

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Dave Abrahams
Milestone: To Be Determined Component: iterator
Version: Severity: Not Applicable
Keywords: iterator function input Cc: mikhailberis@…


Simply put a the function input iterator implementation wraps a nullary function object and allows for bounded iterators using an embedded state variable. The use case is for something like the following:

struct generator {
 typedef int result_type;
 generator() { srand(time(0)); }
 result_type operator() () const { return rand(); }

using namespace std;
using namespace boost;

int main(int argc, char * argv[]) {
 generator f;
   make_function_input_iterator(f, infinite()),
   make_function_input_iterator(f, infinite()),
   ostream_iterator<int>(cout, " ")
 return 0;

And if you don't want an infinite range, you can simply bound it:

  make_function_input_iterator(f, 0),
  make_function_input_iterator(f, 10),
  ostream_iterator<int>(cout, " ")

Resolution: fixed
Status: reopenedclosed

(In [70709]) Iterator: merge several changes from trunk.

  • Update iterator_facade test for #1019 (header change already merged).

  • function_input_iterator from Dean Michael Berris. Fixes #2893
  • Fix typo in boost/iterator.hpp. Fixes #3434.
  • Always include add_reference header in iterator adaptor header.

Did not merge changes for #1427.
