32 Regular expressions library [re]

32.7 Class template basic_regex [re.regex]

32.7.1 General [re.regex.general]

For a char-like type charT, specializations of class template basic_regex represent regular expressions constructed from character sequences of charT characters.
In the rest of [re.regex], charT denotes a given char-like type.
Storage for a regular expression is allocated and freed as necessary by the member functions of class basic_regex.
Objects of type specialization of basic_regex are responsible for converting the sequence of charT objects to an internal representation.
It is not specified what form this representation takes, nor how it is accessed by algorithms that operate on regular expressions.
[Note 1: 
Implementations will typically declare some function templates as friends of basic_regex to achieve this.

The functions described in [re.regex] report errors by throwing exceptions of type regex_error.
