PCRE_GET_STRINGTABLE_ENTRIELibrary Functions MaPCRE_GET_STRINGTABLE_ENTRIES(3)

NAME
       PCRE - Perl-compatible regular expressions

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<pcre.h>

       int pcre_get_stringtable_entries(const pcre *code,
	    const char *name, char **first, char **last);

       int pcre16_get_stringtable_entries(const	pcre16 *code,
	    PCRE_SPTR16	name, PCRE_UCHAR16 **first, PCRE_UCHAR16 **last);

       int pcre32_get_stringtable_entries(const	pcre32 *code,
	    PCRE_SPTR32	name, PCRE_UCHAR32 **first, PCRE_UCHAR32 **last);

DESCRIPTION
       This  convenience function finds, for a compiled	pattern, the first and
       last entries for	a given	name in	the table  that	 translates  capturing
       parenthesis  names  into	 numbers. When names are required to be	unique
       (PCRE_DUPNAMES  is  not	 set),	 it   is   usually   easier   to   use
       pcre[16|32]_get_stringnumber() instead.

	 code	 Compiled regular expression
	 name	 Name whose entries required
	 first	 Where to return a pointer to the first	entry
	 last	 Where to return a pointer to the last entry

       The  yield  of  the  function  is the length of each entry, or PCRE_ER-
       ROR_NOSUBSTRING if none are found.

       There is	a complete description of the PCRE native API,	including  the
       format  of the table entries, in	the pcreapi page, and a	description of
       the POSIX API in	the pcreposix page.
