Subject: [boost] [wave] line continuation
From: Nelson, Erik - 2 (erik.l.nelson_at_[hidden])

I use wave to preprocess some user input, and a common input error is to have a space after the line continuation character, like

#define SOME_MACRO \

I poked around through documentation, but didn't see any configuration options for allowing a more relaxed line continuation of backslash + whitespace. Is there any simple way of doing this?

I can work around it by doing a text substitution before passing the input to wave, but was hoping there was some way to enable it inside wave.
