('binary' encoding is not supported, stored as-is) ('binary' encoding is not supported, stored as-is) Greetings everyone! My name is Ilya and i have such problem with boost::regex_replace : I want to process some text messages to find and replace with * swears there. I wrote regular expressions, this is an example of one of them: "([[:punct:]]|[[:space:]]|[[:digit:]]|^)(?:a)(?:[[:punct:]]|[[:space:]]|[[:digit:]])*(?:b)(?:[[:punct:]]|[[:space:]]|[[:digit:]])*(?:c)([[:punct:]]|[[:space:]]|[[:digit:]]|$)". The format string i used is: "$1***$2"
Then i run boost::regex_replace() and it works almoust correctly, except one case: when i have message with abc's standing next to each other with one separator beetween them, like this: "abc abc", "--abc-abc--" etc. So i need to run boost::regex_replace() twice to process corectly such messages.
Are there any other ways to solve this problem? Thank you for answers.
