NAME         top

       PCRE2 - Perl-compatible regular expressions (revised API)

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <pcre2.h>

       int pcre2_callout_enumerate(const pcre2_code *code,
         int (*callback)(pcre2_callout_enumerate_block *, void *),
         void *callout_data);

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function scans a compiled regular expression and calls the
       callback() function for each callout within the pattern. The
       yield of the function is zero for success and non-zero otherwise.
       The arguments are:

         code           Points to the compiled pattern
         callback       The callback function
         callout_data   User data that is passed to the callback

       The callback() function is passed a pointer to a data block
       containing the following fields (not necessarily in this order):

         uint32_t   version                Block version number
         uint32_t   callout_number         Number for numbered callouts
         PCRE2_SIZE pattern_position       Offset to next item in
         PCRE2_SIZE next_item_length       Length of next item in
         PCRE2_SIZE callout_string_offset  Offset to string within
         PCRE2_SIZE callout_string_length  Length of callout string
         PCRE2_SPTR callout_string         Points to callout string or
       is NULL

       The second argument passed to the callback() function is the
       callout data that was passed to pcre2_callout_enumerate(). The
       callback() function must return zero for success. Any other value
       causes the pattern scan to stop, with the value being passed back
       as the result of pcre2_callout_enumerate().

       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.
