Stringify a define

If you would like to pass a string into a define via the compiler -D directive, but need to use it as if it was a quoted #define, it takes a pair of macros (verified to work on g++ and also Visual Studio):


then it can be used like this:

QFile uiFile(":" STRINGIFY(UI_FILE));

and in the .pro file if using Qt:

DEFINES += UI_FILE="some.ui"

so when it's compiled:

g++ foo.cpp -DUI_FILE=some.ui ...

(oh noes, it's DUI!)

Find range of true values in a std::vector<bool>

class Tracker
	void update(int index, bool value)
		if (index < 0)
		if (unsigned(index) >= m_vec.size())
			m_vec.resize(index * 2 + 1);
		m_vec[index] = value;

	int firstIndex(bool val)
		auto found = std::find(std::begin(m_vec), std::end(m_vec), val);
		if (found == std::end(m_vec))
			return -1;
		return found - m_vec.begin();

	int lastIndex(bool val)
		auto found = std::find(m_vec.rbegin(), m_vec.rend(), true);
		if (found == m_vec.rend())
			return -1;
		return m_vec.rend() - found;

	std::vector<bool> m_vec;
