PCRE2 — Perl-compatible regular expressions (revised API)


        #include <pcre2.h>
void pcre2_match_data_free( pcre2_match_data *match_data);


This function frees the memory occupied by a match data block, using the memory freeing function from the general context or compiled pattern with which it was created, or free() if that was not set.

There is a complete description of the PCRE2 native API in the pcre2api(3) page and a description of the POSIX API in the pcre2posix(3) page.
