The BOOST_PP_REPEAT_FROM_TO_3RD macro represents the third dimension of BOOST_PP_REPEAT_FROM_TO.

Usage

BOOST_PP_REPEAT_FROM_TO_3RD(first, last, macro, data)

Arguments

first
The lower bound of the repetition.  Valid values range from 0 to BOOST_PP_LIMIT_MAG.
last
The upper bound of the repetition. Valid values range from 0 to BOOST_PP_LIMIT_MAG.
macro
A ternary operation of the form macro(z, n, data).  This macro is expanded by BOOST_PP_REPEAT_FROM_TO_3RD with the next available repetition depth, the current repetition number, and the auxiliary data argument. 
data
Auxiliary data passed to macro.

Remarks

This macro expands to the sequence:
macro(z, first, data) macro(z, first + 1, data) ... macro(z, last - 1, data)
The number of repetitions (i.e. last - first) must not exceed BOOST_PP_LIMIT_REPEAT.
The z value that is passed to macro represents the next available repetition dimension.  Other macros that have _Z suffix variants internally use BOOST_PP_REPEAT--for example, BOOST_PP_ENUM_PARAMS and BOOST_PP_ENUM_PARAMS_Z.  Using these _Z versions is not strictly necessary, but passing the z value (that is passed to macro) to these macros allows them to reenter BOOST_PP_REPEAT with maximum efficiency.
To directly use this z value, rather than simply passing it to another macro, see BOOST_PP_REPEAT_FROM_TO_z.
This macro is deprecated.  It only exists for backward compatibility.  Use BOOST_PP_REPEAT_FROM_TO instead.
