Subject: [Boost-users] [Spirit 2] on_error to string
From: Vincent Agnus (vincent.agnus_at_[hidden])

   I have some trouble to retreive error parsing information using
qi::on_error<fail> to work on a std::string.

The documentation propose the following code :

    , std::cout
      << val("constituent: expected ")
      << _4 // what failed?
      << val(" here: \"")
      << construct<std::string>(_3, _2) // iterators to error-pos, end
      << val("\"")
      << std::endl

  * On my First attempt. I have define a class member
(std::stringstream m_error) in my grammar class and replace std::cout
by phx::ref(m_error). But this code generate a compilation error

* For the second attempt, I declare class member m_error as std::string
and use this error handler:

namespace qi = boost::spirit::qi;
namespace phx = boost::phoenix;

on_error< qi::fail>
     , phx::ref(m_error)
        = ( phx::construct<std::string>(phx::val("Error! Expecting "))
             // + qi::_4 REMARK1
             + phx::construct<std::string>( phx::val(" here: \"") )
             + phx::construct<std::string>(qi::_3, qi::_2)
             + phx::construct<std::string>( phx::val("\"") )

that's work perfectly. On error my string is correctly filled. But my
problem is that I can't get the expected token (_4) (REMARK1), If I
uncomment line REMARK1, I get a compilation error, same result using the
code phx::construct<std::string>(qi::_4).

How can a get qi::_4 as string ?

Can any one with kindness help me?
