Description

There is no documentation about Wt::WregExp. It is used in a number of places within the library and it could be useful to programmers.

Hey,

It's an internal class. We try to avoid exposing APIs which depend on boost libraries, since they might cause incompatibilities by having different boost versions used in the app vs the library.

(Nevertheless we do it already in some places: signals, any, and this does not seem to give much issues)

You could use boost::regex instead?

Do you mean WREgExp is actually boost::regex?

If so, I would state this somewhere in the documentation.

People using regular expessions will really need some details on how to use them.

Either directly in the Wt documentation or indirectly by pointing to boost.

P.S.

I posted by mistake the same thing in the forum. Sorry.
