Kenji's 2b does do that:


  for (auto __r = aggr;  // If aggr is copyable, saves the original range.
      !__r.empty;
      __r.popFront()) { auto e = __r.front; ...body... }

Oh, right "use it as in _your_ 2b above". Didn't get what you meant at first.

About the if "opApply can't compile": Do you mean:
a) If there is no matching opApply function?
b) Or if there is an actual error in the body of opApply?
I think you meant a) ?

I think your 1. and 2. should instead read:
1. if aggr has a matching opApply or opApplyReverse, use it.
2. if aggr has opSlice, and the result of aggr.opSlice() has a matching opApply or opApplyReverse, use it.

hehe, sorry.  Should have said Kenji's...

Yes, I meant matching.  Meaning if I define front to return int, and opApply takes a delegate for a float, then foreach(int x; aggr) should use the range primitives, foreach(float x; aggr) should use opApply.

My take on it is that you should either go with ranges or opApply and try to avoid mixing them. Ideally, we wouldn't even need opApply anymore, but ranges can't quite do everything that it can.

AFAIT, that's impossible.

Not because of D, but because of other stuff.

Lots of functions require callbacks for enumeration (e.g. EnumChildWindows in Windows); it's simply impossible to wrap them through something that doesn't take control away from the caller.

How else woud you implement things like parallel foreach, …?

As I said, _ideally_ we wouldn't need opApply, but ranges fail to be able to work in every use case that opApply does. As great as ranges are, there _are_ some cases where ranges are insufficient. So, we still have opApply.

My comment was specifically meant in reply to Mehrdad's »Not because of D« statement.
