On second thoughts, this is not a VC6 error - there is a small bug in your
code - you have mixed two different iterators:
type cmatch is boost::match_results<const char*>
but you have passed "char*" as an iterator.
The iterator you pass to the function must be the same as the one for which
the match_results structure is instantiated, otherwise the compiler will
not find a matching function signature. It would be nice if the compiler
would perform iterator -> const_iterator transformations automatically in a
case like this, but that appears to be asking too much of the compiler.
