Enum member std.range.primitives.hasSlicing

Returns true if R offers a slicing operator with integral boundaries that returns a forward range type.

enum hasSlicing(R) = isForwardRange!R && !(isAutodecodableString!R && !isAggregateType!R) && is(typeof((R r) { return r[1..1].length; } (R.init)) == size_t) && (is(typeof(lvalueOf!R[1..1]) == R) || isInfinite!R) && (!is(typeof(lvalueOf!R[0..__dollar])) || is(typeof(lvalueOf!R[0..__dollar]) == R)) && (!is(typeof(lvalueOf!R[0..__dollar])) || isInfinite!R || is(typeof(lvalueOf!R[0..__dollar - 1]) == R)) && is(typeof((ref R r) { static assert(isForwardRange!(typeof(r[1..2]))); } ));

For finite ranges, the result of opSlice must be of the same type as the original range type. If the range defines opDollar, then it must support subtraction.

For infinite ranges, when not using opDollar, the result of opSlice must be the result of take or takeExactly on the original range (they both return the same type for infinite ranges). However, when using opDollar, the result of opSlice must be that of the original range type.

The following expression must be true for hasSlicing to be true:

&& !(isAutodecodableString!R && !isAggregateType!R)
&& is(typeof((R r) { return r[1 .. 1].length; } (R.init)) == size_t)
&& (is(typeof(lvalueOf!R[1 .. 1]) == R) || isInfinite!R)
&& (!is(typeof(lvalueOf!R[0 .. $])) || is(typeof(lvalueOf!R[0 .. $]) == R))
&& (!is(typeof(lvalueOf!R[0 .. $])) || isInfinite!R
    || is(typeof(lvalueOf!R[0 .. $ - 1]) == R))
&& is(typeof((ref R r)
    static assert(isForwardRange!(typeof(r[1 .. 2])));
