DESCRIPTION

This is a convenience function for extracting a list of all the captured substrings. The arguments are:

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 description of the POSIX API in the pcreposix page.
