.TH PCRE2_SUBSTRING_LIST_GET 3 "21 October 2014" "PCRE2 10.00"
PCRE2 - Perl-compatible regular expressions (revised API)
.B #include <pcre2.h>
.B int pcre2_substring_list_get(pcre2_match_data *\fImatch_data\fP,
.B " PCRE2_UCHAR ***\fIlistptr\fP, PCRE2_SIZE **\fIlengthsptr\fP);
This is a convenience function for extracting all the captured substrings after
a pattern match. It builds a list of pointers to the strings, and (optionally)
a second list that contains their lengths (in code units), excluding a
terminating zero that is added to each of them. All this is done in a single
block of memory that is obtained using the same memory allocation function that
was used to get the match data block. The convenience function
\fBpcre2_substring_list_free()\fP can be used to free it when it is no longer
needed. The arguments are:
\fImatch_data\fP The match data block
\fIlistptr\fP Where to put a pointer to the list
\fIlengthsptr\fP Where to put a pointer to the lengths, or NULL
A pointer to a list of pointers is put in the variable whose address is in
\fIlistptr\fP. The list is terminated by a NULL pointer. If \fIlengthsptr\fP is
not NULL, a matching list of lengths is created, and its address is placed in
\fIlengthsptr\fP. The yield of the function is zero on success or
PCRE2_ERROR_NOMEMORY if sufficient memory could not be obtained.
