PCRE2 — Perl-compatible regular expressions (revised API)


#include <pcre2.h>

pcre2_match_context *pcre2_match_context_create(
  pcre2_general_context *gcontext);


This function creates and initializes a new match context. If its argument is NULL, malloc() is used to get the necessary memory; otherwise the memory allocation function within the general context is used. The result is NULL if the memory could not be obtained.

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.
