#### Problems in adapting a geometry object model using boost geometry

I tried to follow the example given by https://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_75_0/libs/geometry/doc/html/geometry/examples/example__adapting_a_legacy_geometry_object_model.html for the following immutable pointerless variant.

``````#include <boost/geometry.hpp>
#include <boost/geometry/geometries/register/linestring.hpp>
#include <boost/geometry/geometries/register/point.hpp>
#include <boost/range.hpp>
#include <vector>

class Point
{
public:
Point( double x, double y ) : m_x( x ), m_y( y ) {}
double getX() const { return m_x; }
double getY() const { return m_y; }

private:
double m_x, m_y;
};

using TyPoints = std::vector< Point >;

class LineString
{
public:
LineString( TyPoints points ) : m_points( std::move( points ) ) {}
const TyPoints& getPoints() const { return m_points; }

private:
TyPoints m_points;
};

// Provide read only Boost.Range for LineString
namespace boost
{
template<>
struct range_const_iterator< LineString >
{
typedef std::vector< Point >::const_iterator type;
};
}

inline std::vector< Point >::const_iterator range_begin( const LineString& ls )
{
return ls.getPoints().cbegin();
}

inline std::vector< Point >::const_iterator

range_end( const LineString& ls )
{
return ls.getPoints().cend();
}

BOOST_GEOMETRY_REGISTER_POINT_2D_CONST( Point, double, cs::cartesian, getX(), getY() );
BOOST_GEOMETRY_REGISTER_LINESTRING( LineString );

int main( int argc, char* argv[] )
{
const LineString lineString( { { 0.0, 0.0 }, { 1.0, 0.0 }, { 1.0, 1.0 } } );

boost::geometry::length( lineString );
return 0;
}
``````

However, registration as boost geometry fails and I do not know how to resolve this problems.

Could please someone tell me how to fix this problem? Thank you very much!
