NAME

       PCRE - Perl-compatible regular expressions

SYNOPSIS


       #include <pcre.h>

       int pcre_get_stringnumber(const pcre *code,
            const char *name);

DESCRIPTION


       This convenience function finds the number of a named substring capturing parenthesis in a
       compiled pattern. Its arguments are:

         code    Compiled regular expression
         name    Name whose number is required

       The yield of the function is the number of the  parenthesis  if  the  name  is  found,  or
       PCRE_ERROR_NOSUBSTRING otherwise. When duplicate names are allowed (PCRE_DUPNAMES is set),
       it is not defined which of the numbers is returned  by  pcre_get_stringnumber().  You  can
       obtain the complete list by calling pcre_get_stringtable_entries().

       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.
