This template is a helper template used by the slice subscript operator
gslice_array<T> valarray<T>::operator[](const gslice&);
It has reference semantics to a subset of an array specified by a gslice object.
Thus, the expression a[gslice(1, length, stride)] = b has the effect of assigning the elements of b to a generalized slice of the elements in a.
