PCRE2_JIT_STACK_CREATE(3)  Library Functions Manual  PCRE2_JIT_STACK_CREATE(3)

       PCRE2 - Perl-compatible regular expressions (revised API)


       #include	<pcre2.h>

       pcre2_jit_stack *pcre2_jit_stack_create(PCRE2_SIZE startsize,
	 PCRE2_SIZE maxsize, pcre2_general_context *gcontext);


       This function is	used to	create a stack for use by the code compiled by
       the JIT compiler. The first two arguments are a starting	size  for  the
       stack, and a maximum size to which it is	allowed	to grow. The final ar-
       gument is a general context, for	memory allocation functions,  or  NULL
       for  standard  memory  allocation.  The result can be passed to the JIT
       run-time	code by	 calling  pcre2_jit_stack_assign()  to	associate  the
       stack  with  a  compiled	 pattern,  which  can  then  be	 processed  by
       pcre2_match(). If the "fast path"  JIT  matcher,	 pcre2_jit_match()  is
       used,  the stack	can be passed directly as an argument. A maximum stack
       size of 512K to 1M should be more than enough for any pattern. For more
       details,	see the	pcre2jit page.

       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.
