       PCRE - Perl-compatible regular expressions


       #include <pcre.h>

       int pcre_get_stringtable_entries(const pcre *code,
	    const char *name, char **first, char **last);


       This  convenience function finds, for a compiled pattern, the first and last entries for a
       given name in the table that translates capturing parenthesis  names  into  numbers.  When
       names  are  required  to be unique (PCRE_DUPNAMES is not set), it is usually easier to use
       pcre_get_stringnumber() instead.

	 code	 Compiled regular expression
	 name	 Name whose entries required
	 first	 Where to return a pointer to the first entry
	 last	 Where to return a pointer to the last entry

       The yield of the function is the length of each entry, or PCRE_ERROR_NOSUBSTRING  if  none
       are found.

       There  is a complete description of the PCRE native API, including the format of the table
       entries, in the pcreapi page, and a description of the POSIX API in the pcreposix page.
