NAME

       PCRE2 - Perl-compatible regular expressions (revised API)

SYNOPSIS


       #include <pcre2.h>

       int pcre2_substring_copy_byname(pcre2_match_data *match_data,
         PCRE2_SPTR name, PCRE2_UCHAR *buffer, PCRE2_SIZE *bufflen);

DESCRIPTION


       This  is  a  convenience function for extracting a captured substring, identified by name,
       into a given buffer. The arguments are:

         match_data    The match data block for the match
         name          Name of the required substring
         buffer        Buffer to receive the string
         bufflen       Length of buffer (code units)

       The bufflen variable is updated to contain the length of the extracted  string,  excluding
       the  trailing  zero. The yield of the function is zero for success or one of the following
       error numbers:

         PCRE2_ERROR_NOSUBSTRING   there are no groups of that name
         PCRE2_ERROR_UNAVAILBLE    the ovector was too small for that group
         PCRE2_ERROR_UNSET         the group did not participate in the match
         PCRE2_ERROR_NOMEMORY      the buffer is not big enough

       If there is more than one group with the  given  name,  the  first  one  that  is  set  is
       returned.  In this situation PCRE2_ERROR_UNSET means that no group with the given name was
       set.

       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.
