>i'm using a recent snapshot of gcc/g++ v3 prerelease
i found that in Boost.Regex that on many places it is assumed that
std::string::iterator == char*
however, in the libstdc++-v3 accompanying g++-v3 this is not the case
(it is a std::iterator<char *, std::string> i believe)
i started patching the regex sources, but got stuck when in
a number of (const charT*)(...) casts and alike were used
i came a long way by replacing
const char* -> std::string::const_iterator
const charT* -> std::basic_string<charT>::const_iterator
but the low-level casts... is it possible that john maddock helps out

You absolutely should not need to patch anything to use with
string::iterator that is not a char* - this already works with STLPort and
Dinkum libraries that also define the string::iterator as a structure type
in some cases. Probably there is some config setup that's wrong - what
error messages do you get from a compile *with*the*original*sources* ?
