I have to split a regular expression of the shape (simplified for this
the idea is to match (actually with regex_search algorithm) or as a
keyword and to match function names in function invocations (or
should be matched as the keyword "or" and then a parenthesis, but
"foo" should be matched as a function name
the above expression works correctly (and I've always used that one).
Now, I had to split that expression into two regular expressions
and try to match the above situations the same way.
Thus, I'm trying to match each one and then take the one that matched
first with the biggest length (and smallest prefix but this is not
of course I don't get the desired behavior, since in
"or" is matched as a function name.
Thus I was wondering: which is the actual algorithm used by
regex_search? Does it take into consideration other things beside the
thanks in advance
