       PCRE2 - Perl-compatible regular expressions (revised API)

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <pcre2.h>

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

DESCRIPTION         top

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

         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

         PCRE2_ERROR_NOSUBSTRING   there are no groups of that name
         PCRE2_ERROR_UNAVAILBLE    the ovector was too small for that
         PCRE2_ERROR_UNSET         the group did not participate in the
         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.
