NAME

       PCRE - Perl-compatible regular expressions

SYNOPSIS


       #include <pcre.h>

       int pcre_get_substring_list(const char *subject,
            int *ovector, int stringcount, const char ***listptr);

       int pcre16_get_substring_list(PCRE_SPTR16 subject,
            int *ovector, int stringcount, PCRE_SPTR16 **listptr);

       int pcre32_get_substring_list(PCRE_SPTR32 subject,
            int *ovector, int stringcount, PCRE_SPTR32 **listptr);

DESCRIPTION


       This  is  a convenience function for extracting a list of all the captured substrings. The
       arguments are:

         subject       Subject that has been successfully matched
         ovector       Offset vector that pcre[16|32]_exec used
         stringcount   Value returned by pcre[16|32]_exec
         listptr       Where to put a pointer to the list

       The memory in which the substrings  and  the  list  are  placed  is  obtained  by  calling
       pcre[16|32]_malloc().  The  convenience  function pcre[16|32]_free_substring_list() can be
       used to free it when it is no longer needed. A pointer to a list of pointers is put in the
       variable  whose address is in listptr. The list is terminated by a NULL pointer. The yield
       of the function is zero on success or PCRE_ERROR_NOMEMORY if sufficient memory  could  not
       be obtained.

       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.
