Global space

boost::xpressive::space — Matches a space character.


// In header: <boost/xpressive/regex_primitives.hpp>

unspecified space;


The regex traits are used to determine which characters are space characters. To match any character that is not white-space, use ~space.

[Note] Note

space is equivalent to /[[:space:]]/ in perl. ~space is equivalent to /[[:^space:]]/ in perl.
