Unfortunately, != operator is not mentioned in neither hana documentation nor cppreference: . Thanks for quick response!

Hana mentions this:

Free model for EqualityComparable data types

Two data types T and U that model the cross-type EqualityComparable concept presented in N3351 automatically model the Comparable concept [...]

@ldionne How are views used? I was looking at view_storage and noticed it stores a reference. Does that mean that a const& won't work?

auto tuple = hana::make_tuple(1, 2, 3);
auto view = hana::make_view(tuple); // mutable view

auto const ctuple = hana::make_tuple(1, 2, 3);
auto cview = hana::make_view(ctuple); // view-over-const, not mutable
That's the spirit, I need to test more.
And it should be possible to have stuff like views over optionals, etc.

Why don't views have their own tags? Is there not a penalty for all of the overloading in each function impl?

The idea is that view should be a data type of its own, and you never actually create a view with something like sliced, etc..
You only create a view withmake_view, and then pretend it’s a normal container and use normal algorithms on it.
