[Boost.Range] Documentation

Boost - Dev mailing list
I had a need to try and understand Boost.Range. I don't know what to say,
did this documentation pass a review?

Introduction first "example":

Example - Iterate over the values in a map

using namespace boost;
using namespace boost::adaptors;
for_each( my_map | map_values, fn );

3 lines, out of which 2 'using' lines, that make this "example" even less
informative than it might have been without them, in wich case I would at
least have known in which namespace(s) these things are living.

Ah, wait, there's also an example section, so I'll copy the first example
<http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_64_0/libs/range/test/string.cpp> in here:

Well, that obviously got me up and running, thanks.

Is there any other documentation/examples to have a look at?

Perhaps

http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_64_0/libs/range/doc/html/range/reference/adaptors/introduction.html

And from

http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_64_0/libs/range/doc/html/range/reference/adaptors/reference/adjacent_filtered.html

and forward, there is an example for each adaptor.

For algorithms,

http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_64_0/libs/range/doc/html/range/reference/algorithms/introduction.html
