Global _b

boost::xpressive::_b — Word boundary assertion.


unspecified _b;


'_b' matches the zero-width sub-sequence at the beginning or the end of a word. It is equivalent to (bow | eow). The regex traits are used to determine what constitutes a word character. To match a non-word boundary, use ~_b.
