       PCRE - Perl-compatible regular expressions


       #include <pcre.h>

       int pcre_refcount(pcre *code, int adjust);

       int pcre16_refcount(pcre16 *code, int adjust);

       int pcre32_refcount(pcre32 *code, int adjust);


       This  function  is  used to maintain a reference count inside a data block that contains a
       compiled pattern. Its arguments are:

         code                      Compiled regular expression
         adjust                    Adjustment to reference value

       The yield of the function is the adjusted reference value, which  is  constrained  to  lie
       between 0 and 65535.

       There  is  a  complete  description  of  the  PCRE  native  API  in the pcreapi page and a
       description of the POSIX API in the pcreposix page.
