Re: Works only with standard strings...

Another library that supports wide characters is
TRE (http://freshmeat.net/projects/tre).

I do now. Boost (http://www.boost.org) has a rather nice regexx that likes wide strings, documented here (http://www.boost.org/libs/regex/index.htm)

Works only with standard strings...
This is a good effort, but it only works with the standard 'string' class. If you want to work with wide characters (e.g. Unicode) this class will not work. You will have to convert your wchar_t strings (or whatever you're using) to char*/string strings before using this.. and for some languages, the characters will simply not convert (e.g. Japanese, Chinese, or Thai).

On the other hand, I know of no libraries publically (and openly) available that can provide support for wide character regular expressions.
