// Regular-expression based scanner for parsing an input stream.
//
// Example 1: parse a sequence of "var = number" entries from input:
//
//      Scanner scanner(input);
//      string var;
//      int number;
//      scanner.SetSkipExpression("\\s+"); // Skip any white space we encounter
//      while (scanner.Consume("(\\w+) = (\\d+)", &var, &number)) {
//        ...;
//      }
