regex compilation under VC++

P: n/a
Hi,
I am trying to port some linux code to windows under Visual studio.
The regex package currently used is the GNU regex package which calls
for <strings.h>. This is not found in visual studio. Hence I am in
need of a regex package for visual studio.

I tried
http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homep...ck/regexpp.htm

but I am having some problems with compilation since I also use
STLPort. In this case, I am having problems with compiling the regex
package using vc6-stlport.mak

Any pointers to a regex package compliant with the Stlport would be
greatly appreciated.

Cheers
Ram

Have you had a look at the boost libraries (www.boost.org)? They are highly
portable and contain John Maddock's regex module.

Thanks for the information.
Yeah, I did try boost libraries. I am having some problems in building
them since I use STLPort. Plus, I already have the GNU_regex.c and
GNU_regex.h files and the wrapper classes written. Hence, I thought it
would be cool if the GNU type regex libraries existed for VC++.
Someone had said that they did not have any issues compiling the GNU
regex library under VC++. I am wondering what did they do.

Thanks
Ram
