Ticket #4215 (closed Bugs: fixed)

Opened 5 years ago

Last modified 5 years ago

match_results docs incorrectly refer to returning strings

Reported by: Jonathan Wakely <jwakely.boost@…> Owned by: johnmaddock
Milestone: Boost 1.43.0 Component: regex
Version: Boost Development Trunk Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:


The documentation for match_results::length and match_results::position both say:

The overloads that accept a string refer to a named sub-expression n. In the event that there is no such named sub-expression then returns an empty string.

Those functions return difference_type not a string
