Subject: [boost] [property_tree] Conversion constructor missing?
From: Boris (boriss_at_[hidden])

Imagine you have this XML structure (copied from the documentation and


Now imagine you have this function which you want to call three times to
pass the <module>...</module> nodes to:

void foo(boost::property_tree::ptree pt);

You can use get_child("debug.modules") to retrieve a property tree
containing all module nodes. However if you iterate over the property tree
the iterator refers to std::pair<const key_type, basic_ptree<Tr>> - and
there is no simple way to convert this pair to a new property tree. You
must create an empty property tree followed by a call to push_back() to
insert the pair. Either there is a conversion constructor missing or I
miss something and there is a simpler way of what I'm trying to do?
