Function template find_all_regex

boost::algorithm::find_all_regex — Find all regex algorithm.


template<typename SequenceSequenceT, typename RangeT, typename CharT, 
typename RegexTraitsT> 
SequenceSequenceT & 
find_all_regex(SequenceSequenceT & Result, const RangeT & Input, 
const basic_regex< CharT, RegexTraitsT > & Rx, 
match_flag_type Flags = match_default);


This algorithm finds all substrings matching the give regex in the input.

Each part is copied and added as a new element to the output container. Thus the result container must be able to hold copies of the matches (in a compatible structure like std::string) or a reference to it (e.g. using the iterator range class). Examples of such a container are std::vector<std::string> or std::list<boost::iterator_range<std::string::iterator>>



Regex options


A container which will be searched.


A container that can hold copies of references to the substrings.


A regular expression

Returns: A reference to the result
Notes: Prior content of the result will be overwritten.

This function provides the strong exception-safety guarantee
