    If you are using Visual Studio 2008 or 2010, you should be able to use the regular expression functionality in the TR1 extensions to the standard library, i.e., #include <regex> and use std::tr1::regex.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    hello there, thanks for your reply, i have done what you said and it works, i jsut have one question.

    in unix you do a regcomp before doing a regexec, but it seems as though the equivalent on windows is just simply calling regex_search, am i correct or have i misunderstood something?
