inline constexpr bool disable_sized_range = false;
1) The sized_range concept specifies the requirements of a range type that knows its size in constant time with the size function.

Formally, given an lvalue t of type std::remove_reference_t<T>, T models sized_range only if

  • has amortized constant-time complexity,
  • does not alter the value of t in a manner observable to equality-preserving expressions, and
  • is equal to ranges::distance(t), and
  • if iterator_t<T> models forward_iterator, ranges::size(t) is well-defined regardless of the evaluation of ranges::begin(t) (in other words, a single-pass sized range may support a call to size only before the first call to begin, but a forward range must support size at all times)
2) disable_sized_range exists to allows use of range types that provide a size function (either as a member or as a non-member) but do not in fact model sized_range. Users may specialize disable_sized_range for cv-unqualified program-defined types. Such specializations shall be usable in constant expressions and have type const bool.

[edit] Notes

disable_sized_range cannot be used to opt-out a range whose iterator and sentinel satisfy sized_sentinel_for; disable_sized_sentinel_for must be used instead.

disable_sized_range cannot be specialized for array types or reference types.
