Arno studied computer science and management and holds a Ph.D. from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a specialization on Computer Graphics.
Abstract: Pairs of iterators are ubiquitous throughout the C++ library. It is generally accepted that combining such a pair into a single entity usually termed Range delivers more concise and readable code. Defining the precise semantics of such Range concept proves surprisingly tricky, however. Theoretical considerations conflict with practical ones. Some design goals are mutually incompatible altogether.
