I really appreciate your prompt reply on this issue. I spent about
eight hours trying to get it to work and you set me straight with
just "-lboost_regex"! It worked fine after that. Being a C++ newbie I
don't have a full grasp of compiler and library issues. I did install
it for MS Visual C++ with no problems thanks to the great install

I hope you realize how valueable this library is. I'm pretty
comfortable with Perl and I have to say I use "split" and regular
expression pattern matching everywhere. When I delved into C++ I had
to take a few steps back without these tools. I'm really not at the
point where I could write my own. I've just scratched the first
grains of sand off of your regex++ library, but I really like what I
see so far.

Incidentally I heard about regex++ in Dr. Dobbs Journal.

Thanks so much for your efforts.
