int main ()

  std::string s ("there is a needle in this haystack");
  std::smatch m;
  std::regex e ("needle");

  std::cout << "searching for needle in [" << s << "]\n";
  std::regex_search ( s, m, e );

    std::cout << "prefix: [" << m.prefix() << "]\n";
    std::cout << "suffix: [" << m.suffix() << "]\n";
  }
