Actually what I need boost_regex for is going to
primarily involve wide characters.. for example, I'm
not sure how the syntax would be if I am trying to
refer to a unicode character.

Yeah, I was able to work it out. I got my program to
compile/run with it. 
So far I am confused about:
1. Syntax of unicode characters in regular expression
   a. do I put the character as is, retaining regular
   b. can I refer to it using a sepcial syntax? \xfeff
? something  
       like that?
2. cmatch .. when you have something like:
cmatch what;
str = "some string"
regex express("(\\S\\S)([Ayw])(\\S)");
if (regex_match(str, what, express))
  cout << what[0].first << endl;
  cout << "No match!\n";
Even after reading the documentation on the second
argument to regex_match, I didn't quite understand it.
