std::match_results::cbegin

const_iterator cbegin() const;
Return const_iterator to beginning
Returns a const_iterator pointing to the first match in the match_results object. Together with match_results::cend, these functions describe a range that encompasses all the matches in the match_results object.

In match_results, where the matches contained are always const, this function is exactly the same as match_results::begin.

Parameters

none

Return value

An iterator to to the sub_match object describing the first match in the match_results object.

Member type const_iterator (the same as member type iterator) is a forward iterator type.
The matches contained in a match_results object are always const.
