Milestone: To Be Determined Component: algorithm
Version: Boost 1.55.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:


clamp isn't available in boost namespace itself while other algorithms are. Could it be added?

It's not a problem. Not all algortihm available in boost namespace. A lot of algortihm yo can find in boost::algortihm.

I think, there are some historical problems and in the near future we can't do with that something useful (because backward compatibility).

I don't see how backwards compat is a problem. Having the name available in both namespaces is simple AFAIK.

Soon we'll have std::clamp so then it won't matter as much.

I think it's no good idea to have one algorithm in two namespaces.
