Based on the option, I'll assume you are using a command line compiler like
gcc. So you will need to do something like:

g++ -I PATH_TO_BOOST/boost_1_31_0 file_to_compile.cpp -LPATH_TO_REGEX_LIBRARY
-l boost_regex-gcc-d-1_31

Also, regex is a compile library so you will need the to link against the
library. If you haven't already you might want to read:

I'm afraid you are going to specify include path in all compiles. Good news
is that you only need to put the top boost directy even if you are using
several libraries. Normally a makefile is the ticket for doing this...
