       PCRE2 - Perl-compatible regular expressions (revised API)


       #include <pcre2.h>

       int pcre2_substring_nametable_scan(const pcre2_code *code,
         PCRE2_SPTR name, PCRE2_SPTR *first, PCRE2_SPTR *last);


       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.
