PCRE2 — Perl-compatible regular expressions (revised API)


#include <pcre2.h>
void pcre2_substring_free( PCRE2_UCHAR *buffer);


This is a convenience function for freeing the memory obtained by a previous call to pcre2_substring_get_byname() or pcre2_substring_get_bynumber(). Its only argument is a pointer to the string.

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.
