Boost-Extended Format String Syntax

To increase string search flexibility, Boost-Extended format strings treat the majority of characters as literals. The only exceptions to this are:

$ ( ) , \ : ?

These characters are not interpreted literally so that they can be used for commonly used functions when formatting strings. To be interpreted as literals, these characters must be preceded by \.

  • Grouping
  • Conditionals
  • Placeholder Sequences
  • Escape Sequences
