match_results and singular iterator woes with msvc-10.0

Reported by: eric_niebler Owned by: johnmaddock
Milestone: Boost 1.43.0 Component: regex
Version: Boost Development Trunk Severity: Problem
Keywords: regex iterator debugging msvc-10.0 Cc:


Hi John, I just fixed a similar issue in xpressive and thought that it would probably manifest in your lib, too. Sure enough. The msvc-10.0 beta has new iterator debugging that is very strict. The following code causes a crash in match_results::swap:

#include <boost/regex.hpp>

int main()
    using namespace boost;
    regex rx("\\w+");
    smatch what0, what1;
    std::string hello("hello");
    if(regex_match(hello, what0, rx))

The problem is that what1.m_base is a singular iterator at this point. The swap tries to assign from it, which is verboten.

Sigh... what's really annoying about this is that VC-10 actually appears to be correct in complaining!

Fixed in Trunk.

Thanks for the heads-up, John.

There still seems to be a problem with this with the release version of VC10 and the current trunk code - the

that.m_base = m_base;

on line 407 of match_results.hpp is crashing in the regex_regress regression test, due to being singular.

(In [61430]) Disambiguate between boost::ref and std:ref etc. Suppress some new warnings from VC-10. Fix singular iterator logic (fixes VC-10 failures). Fixes #4114. Fixes #3632
