I am busy with #2 parsers:

1) RegexParser: Intended to be a full regular expression parser

2) RegexSplitter: to just break up regular expression into substrings
for top level regex-group & non-regex-group substrings:

It's just a start and so much wrong within, i know.
But i have one concrete question for the RegexSplitter:

How can i avoid in RegexSplitter.cpp to use

#157 ( tok_element >> *tok_element ) [ qi::_val = phx::new_<ASTNode>
(qi::_1, qi::_2, ASTNode::COLLECTION_c) ];

I want to pass a SINGLE std::vector<ATSNode *> only to the receiving

#52 ASTNode::ASTNode(
#53 ASTNode const * first,
#54 std::vector<ASTNode *> & others,
#55 Type const type)

without the SEPARATE parameter 'first'.
I.e. i need to "merge" qi::_1 and qi::_2.
