The Ranges library proposal has been accepted for C++20 at the San Diego meeting of the standard committee in November last year. The library provides components for handling ranges of values aimed at simplifying our code. Unfortunately, the Ranges library is not very well documented, which makes it harder to grasp for those that want to learn it. This post is intended as an introduction based on examples of code written with and without Ranges.
A couple years ago I wrote a post called A better date and time C++ library about Howard Hinnant’s date library (I actually planned for several posts, but only the first was materialized). A slightly modified version of the library has been voted in for C++ 20 at the ISO committee meeting in Jacksonville this month. You can find the actual proposal here D0355R7: Extending <chrono> to Calendars and Time Zones.
