Difficulty with multi-line raw string literals

Jump to solution

I've been having trouble with multi-line raw string literals. This small program will illustrate:

#include <iostream>
#include <string>

using namespace std;

#pragma warning(disable : 1345)
const string grammar = R"!(
tokens

    <comment> : template = <slash_prefix_comment>

rules

    E ::= E '+' T | T
    T ::= T '*' F | F
    F ::= <number> | '(' E ')'

$)!";
#pragma warning(default : 1345)

int main()
{

    for (auto c: grammar)
    {
        cout << c << "   " << static_cast<int>(c) << endl;
    }

}

The pragma is to stop a warning about unterminated string literals. I don't think I should be getting that but I can live with the pragma. The last character to print here should be '$', but with version 14 of the compiler I get a few characters of junk instead of the '$'. With longer literals much more can be cut off. I gather this feature is intended for regex expressions but I'm trying to use it for something like a `here document', which would be longer. I think that should work too. Am I missing something?

You're correct, it's a compiler bug. Is your host Windows or Linux?

It appears to be DPD200249078 in our internal bugs database. DPD200249078 has been fixed so it should be in the next update.
