PCRE_GET_SUBSTRING_LIST(3)	     Library Functions Manual	       PCRE_GET_SUBSTRING_LIST(3)

NAME
       PCRE - Perl-compatible regular expressions

SYNOPSIS

       #include <pcre.h>

       int pcre_get_substring_list(const char *subject,
	    int *ovector, int stringcount, const char ***listptr);

DESCRIPTION

       This  is  a convenience function for extracting a list of all the captured substrings. The
       arguments are:

	 subject       Subject that has been successfully matched
	 ovector       Offset vector that pcre_exec used
	 stringcount   Value returned by pcre_exec
	 listptr       Where to put a pointer to the list

       The memory in which the substrings  and	the  list  are	placed	is  obtained  by  calling
       pcre_malloc().  The convenience function pcre_free_substring_list() can be used to free it
       when it is no longer needed. A pointer to a list of pointers is put in the variable  whose
       address is in listptr. The list is terminated by a NULL pointer. The yield of the function
       is zero on success or PCRE_ERROR_NOMEMORY if sufficient memory could not be obtained.

       There is a complete description of the PCRE native API in the pcreapi page and a  descrip-
       tion of the POSIX API in the pcreposix page.
