Parser Directive Inhibiting Skipping Without Pre-skip (no_skip[])
Description

The no_skip[] directive turns off white space skipping. The difference to lexeme is that it does not do pre-skipping in any case. Otherwise it is completely equivalent to the lexeme directive.

Header
// forwards to <boost/spirit/home/qi/directive/no_skip.hpp>
#include <boost/spirit/include/qi_no_skip.hpp>

Also, see Include Structure.

Namespace

Name

boost::spirit::no_skip // alias: boost::spirit::qi::no_skip

Model of

UnaryParser

Notation

a

A Parser.

Expression Semantics

Semantics of an expression is defined only where it differs from, or is not defined in UnaryParser.

Expression

Semantics

no_skip[a]

Turns off white space skipping for the subject parser, a (and all its children). This directive does not pre-skips.

Attributes

See Compound Attribute Notation.

Expression

Attribute

no_skip[a]

a: A --> no_skip[a]: A
a: Unused --> no_skip[a]: Unused

Complexity

The complexity is defined by the complexity of the subject parser, a

Example
[Note] Note

The test harness for the example(s) below is presented in the Basics Examples section.

Some using declarations:

using boost::spirit::qi::no_skip;
using boost::spirit::qi::char_;

Simple usage of no_skip[]:

The use of no_skip here will prevent skipping of whitespace in front and in between the characters of the string ' abc '.

std::string str;
test_phrase_parser_attr("'  abc  '",
    '\'' >> no_skip[+~char_('\'')] >> '\'', str);
std::cout << str << std::endl;    // will output: >  abc  <
