Hi.
i have a list of strings (CString data type) with me. These are actually file names. From these, how can i select the strings which match a regular expression?
For eg:- if Search pattern = ".", i have to select all strings of the list. if search pattern in "ss", i have to select the strings having "ss" in it.
To be more specific, the list i have is a set of file names.

CString does not support regular expressions.
You could use Boost::Regex.

C# is having a Regex library. If i include "using System.Text.RegularExpression" in my C++ code, will i be able to use Regex?

To do it you should compile your application with CLR; add the using statement is not enough. Search about using CLR and MFC together; however I think it's better if you use a lightweight regular expression library for C++, as the one that _Superman_ suggested you.
