PCRE2_MATCH_DATA_CREATE(3) Library Functions Manual PCRE2_MATCH_DATA_CREATE(3)

NAME
       PCRE2 - Perl-compatible regular expressions (revised API)

SYNOPSIS

       #include	<pcre2.h>

       pcre2_match_data	*pcre2_match_data_create(uint32_t ovecsize,
	 pcre2_general_context *gcontext);

DESCRIPTION

       This function creates a new match data block, which is used for holding
       the result of a match. The first	argument specifies the number of pairs
       of  offsets that	are required. These form the "output vector" (ovector)
       within the match	data block, and	 are  used  to	identify  the  matched
       string  and  any	 captured substrings. There is always one pair of off-
       sets; if	ovecsize is zero, it is	treated	as one.

       The second argument points to a general context,	for custom memory man-
       agement,	 or  is	 NULL  for system memory management. The result	of the
       function	is NULL	if the memory for the block could not be obtained.

       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.
