Finally, (only about 6 months after we discussed this!) I've placed a
preliminary "boostified" port of regex++ in the vault at
The port is stable and tested with VC6, C++ Builder and gcc2.95 (and of
course there are a lot of people using the existing version already).
However there are still some changes I'd like to make before it hits boost
* It needs a detail namespace for the implementation private stuff.
* I would like to add support for non-greedy repeats and probably perl like
"split" functions (these are the most often requested features).
* There are still a number of legacy configuration options that can be
depreciated now, in particular the configure script can be cut down in size
Over the longer term the traits classes and locale support needs revising
(they work but ain't pretty), some users have requested support for
persistance (pre-compiled expressions), and reversible expressions
(searching backwards), which would also be nice but will have to wait their
