Description

This class provides a quick lookup by building what amounts to a tree data structure. It also features a match function which can can handle nasty input interators by caching values as it recurses the tree so that it can backtrack as needed.

string_parse_tree construct/copy/destruct

  1. string_parse_tree(collection_type names, unsigned int starting_point = 0);

    Parameter "starting_point" desingates where the numbering begins. A starting_point of zero will start the numbering at zero (Sun=0, Mon=1, ...) were a starting_point of one starts the numbering at one (Jan=1, Feb=2, ...). The default is zero, negative vaules are not allowed

  2. string_parse_tree(short value = -1);

string_parse_tree public member functions

  1. void insert(const string_type & s, unsigned short value) ;
  2. short match(std::istreambuf_iterator< charT > & sitr, 
    std::istreambuf_iterator< charT > & stream_end, 
    parse_match_result_type & result, unsigned int & level) const;

    Must check match_results::has_remaining() after match() is called. This is required so the user can determine if stream iterator is already pointing to the expected character or not (match() might advance sitr to next char in stream).

    A parse_match_result that has been returned from a failed match attempt can be sent in to the match function of a different string_parse_tree to attempt a match there. Use the iterators for the partially consumed stream, the parse_match_result object, and '0' for the level parameter.

  3. parse_match_result_type 
    match(std::istreambuf_iterator< charT > & sitr, 
    std::istreambuf_iterator< charT > & stream_end) const;

    Must check match_results::has_remaining() after match() is called. This is required so the user can determine if stream iterator is already pointing to the expected character or not (match() might advance sitr to next char in stream).

  4. void printme(std::ostream & os, int & level) ;
  5. void print(std::ostream & os) ;
  6. void printmatch(std::ostream & os, charT c) ;
