        I'd have thought that

        regex / string

should yield an iterator into the match groups container:

        for(g = regex / string; g++; g) {
                cout << "group = " << *g << endl;

and hence


works because it yields a 'null' iterator if the comparison fails.
To substitute the groups into the format string:

        (regex/string) >> format

to reference group 3:


Another possibility is just:

        m = regex/string;
        for (g = m.begin(); g++; m.end()) ..

ie. regex/string is a standard container supporting
random iterators.
