pcre2_serialize_get_number_of_codes(3) — Linux manual page



NAME         top

       PCRE2 - Perl-compatible regular expressions (revised API)

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <pcre2.h>

       int32_t pcre2_serialize_get_number_of_codes(const uint8_t *bytes);

DESCRIPTION         top

       The bytes argument must point to a serialized byte stream that
       was originally created by pcre2_serialize_encode() (though it may
       have been saved on disc or elsewhere in the meantime). The
       function returns the number of serialized patterns in the byte
       stream, or one of the following negative error codes:

         PCRE2_ERROR_BADMAGIC  mismatch of id bytes in bytes
         PCRE2_ERROR_BADMODE   mismatch of variable unit size or PCRE
         PCRE2_ERROR_NULL      the argument is NULL

       PCRE2_ERROR_BADMAGIC may mean that the data is corrupt, or that
       it was compiled on a system with different endianness.

       There is a complete description of the PCRE2 native API in the
       pcre2api page and a description of the serialization functions in
       the pcre2serialize page.
