The document says

Copyright C 2008-2010 Marcin Kalicinski
Copyright C 2010-2013 Sebastian Redl
Distributed under the Boost Software License, Version 1.0. (See accompanying file LICENSE_1_0.txt or copy at

should be suitable, but you would need to make it clear that this only applies to the section you quote.

But if you are always providing a link that attributes the text to Boost (as well as the parsers text), then the copyright notice in
the contents of the link should suffice?
