PCRE2_SUBSTRING_NAMETABLE_SLibrary Functions PCRE2_SUBSTRING_NAMETABLE_SCAN(3)

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

SYNOPSIS

       #include	<pcre2.h>

       int pcre2_substring_nametable_scan(const	pcre2_code *code,
	 PCRE2_SPTR name, PCRE2_SPTR *first, PCRE2_SPTR	*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.

	 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

       When  the  name	is  found in the table,	if first is NULL, the function
       returns a group number, but if there is more than one  matching	entry,
       it  is  not  defined which one. Otherwise, when both pointers have been
       set, the	yield of the function is the length  of	 each  entry  in  code
       units. If the name is not found,	PCRE2_ERROR_NOSUBSTRING	is returned.

       There  is a complete description	of the PCRE2 native API, including the
       format of the table entries, in the pcre2api page, and a	description of
       the POSIX API in	the pcre2posix page.
