int pcre_get_substring_list(const char *subject,
int *ovector, int stringcount, const char ***listptr);
This is a convenience function for extracting a list of all the captured substrings. The
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.
