This looks rather useful (and even more using your later refinement) but with a brief attempt, I've failed to get this to work.

with MSVC 8.0 debug I get linking against


(built using a recent library build from trunk).

demo_grep.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "public: void __thiscall boost::re_detail::raw_storage::resize(unsigned
int)" (?resize_at_raw_storage_at_re_detail_at_boost@@QAEXI_at_Z) referenced in function "public: void * __thiscall
boost::re_detail::raw_storage::extend(unsigned int)" (?extend_at_raw_storage_at_re_detail_at_boost@@QAEPAXI_at_Z)
demo_grep.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "public: void * __thiscall boost::re_detail::raw_storage::insert(unsigned
int,unsigned int)" (?insert_at_raw_storage_at_re_detail_at_boost@@QAEPAXII_at_Z) referenced in function "public: struct
boost::re_detail::re_syntax_base * __thiscall boost::re_detail::basic_regex_creator<char,struct boost::regex_traits<char,class
boost::cpp_regex_traits<char> > >::insert_state(int,enum boost::re_detail::syntax_element_type,unsigned int)"
J:\Cpp\Misc\Debug\grep.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 2 unresolved externals

In release mode, it compiles and links, but promptly crashes :-(

Suggestions what I am doing wrong?
