Per 26.2 [ranges.syn]/1, the Standard Library believes it can convert an integer-like type X to an unsigned integer-like type with the exposition-only type alias make-unsigned-like-t. make-unsigned-like-t<X> is specified as being equivalent to make_unsigned_t<X> when X is an integral type. However, despite being an integral type, bool is not a valid template type argument for make_unsigned_t per [tab:meta.trans.sign].This problem with bool was an oversight when we added support for integer-like types: it was certainly not the design intent to allow ranges::size(r) to return false! While we could devise some more-complicated metaprogramming to allow use of bool, it seems easier — and consistent with the design intent — to simply exclude bool from the set of integer-like types.
[2020-08-02; Reflector prioritization]
Set priority to 0 and status to Tentatively Ready after six votes in favour during reflector discussions.
[2020-11-09 Approved In November virtual meeting. Status changed: Tentatively Ready → WP.]
This wording is relative to N4861.
Modify 18.104.22.168 [iterator.concept.winc] as indicated:
-11- A type I is integer-like if it models integral<I> or if it is an integer-class type. A type I is signed-integer-like if it models signed_integral<I> or if it is a signed-integer-class type. A type I is unsigned-integer-like if it models unsigned_integral<I> or if it is an unsigned-integer-class type.
