c++.stlsoft - font sequence

And... have you thought about doing a font enumeration sequence? It could
come in handy while doing a font name selector (which I happen to be
currently doing)... something that might allow writting the following:

font_sequences fonts;
std::for_each(fonts.begin(), fonts.end(),
listbox_add_inserter(aList_handle));

What do you think?

... I misremembered. Fonts cannot be enumerated in STL fashion because
they're callback objects. (See my article "Adapting Callback Enumeration
APIs to the Input Iterator Concept", CUJ, Feb 2004.)

The only way to do it as an STL sequence is to enumerate into a container -
list / vector - and then provide that.

However, they do fit into the Range concept, which will be making an
appearance in STLSoft (and DTL) sometime soon, though probably not 1.7.1,
since it's do damnably late!!

Interesting, I didn't really think about it at first, I just thought it'd be cool to have 'em... but I guess you're right... And I'd love to read the article, but my subscription seems to have expired, and I don't see any 2004 articles on the web page... Also, I still can't get to your web page! It's been going on for 2 or 3 weeks now, maybe it's 'cuz around here, everyone's got the same ISP and that ISP has trouble with your web site, I don't know...

Looking forward to it...

I can see we're going to get on well. ;)

Sadly that article is not accessible via the web. But the information will be covered in detail in my next book - "Extended STL" - due out next year. He he. <G>
 Also, I still can't get to your web page!

Damn!

Maybe. It seems fine here. I'm thinking about changing though, as I get about 300 spam emails a day at the moment, and the ISP, though they're very reasonable in cost, don't provide any filtering.

:) I think it'll be 2-3 months before the Ranges get into STLSoft. Maybe 1.8.1 ...

Someone else recently reported that. If you can be bothered, it'd be good if you surf into http://phpwebhosting.com and report the problem. Hopefully, if enough people - of those who are experiencing it - report it something may get done. Cheers Matthew

What happens here is I try stlsoft.org, get redirected to synesis and then I
never get any response...

That's very annoying. The good news is that STLSoft 1.7.1 is _very nearly ready_, and the stlsoft.digitalmars.com site will be updated accordingly.
