PCRE2_GET_MARK(3)	   Library Functions Manual	     PCRE2_GET_MARK(3)

       PCRE2 - Perl-compatible regular expressions (revised API)


       #include	<pcre2.h>

       PCRE2_SPTR pcre2_get_mark(pcre2_match_data *match_data);


       After  a	 call of pcre2_match() that was	passed the match block that is
       this function's argument, this function returns a pointer to  the  last
       (*MARK),	 (*PRUNE),  or	(*THEN)	 name  that was	encountered during the
       matching	process. The name is zero-terminated, and is within  the  com-
       piled pattern. The length of the	name is	in the preceding code unit. If
       no name is available, NULL is returned.

       After a successful match, the name that is returned is the last one  on
       the  matching  path.  After a failed match or a partial match, the last
       encountered name	is returned.

       There is	a complete description of the PCRE2 native API in the pcre2api
       page and	a description of the POSIX API in the pcre2posix page.
