Talk:cpp/regex/ecmascript

From cppreference.com

[edit] Usefulness

Currently we're already linking to the ECMAScript spec from cpp/regex/syntax_option_type (granted, that could use being more visible). I believe pages on each supported regex syntax could be useful if they

  • correct and complete (as written, this page is incomplete: it's missing all the locale-sensitive classes supported by C++ in ECMAScript mode)
  • have small examples or at least prose to illustrate and explain different grammar (otherwise it's no better than following a link to the standard)

PS: I suspect that this page, as written, was strongly influenced by http://www.cplusplus.com/reference/regex/ECMAScript/ or whatever its author used as the source -- it follows exact same layout for the part it covers. It would look better if this wiki followed either the standard or boost.regex, or something of its own --Cubbi (talk) 11:29, 21 October 2013 (PDT)

I agree, in its current form the page is not much useful. However, there's indeed not much to lose if we have a well documented and consistent documentation of all supported syntaxes. --P12 04:53, 23 October 2013 (PDT)
