SYNOPSIS         top


       #include <pcre.h>

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

       int pcre16_get_stringnumber(const pcre16 *code,
            PCRE_SPTR16 name);

       int pcre32_get_stringnumber(const pcre32 *code,
            PCRE_SPTR32 name);

DESCRIPTION         top


       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[16|32]_get_stringnumber(). You can obtain the complete list
       by calling pcre[16|32]_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.
