       PCRE - Perl-compatible regular expressions


       #include <pcre.h>

       int pcre_get_stringnumber(const pcre *code,
            const char *name);


       This  convenience  function  finds  the  number  of  a  named substring
       capturing parenthesis in a compiled pattern. Its arguments are:

         code    Compiled regular expression
         name    Name whose number is required

       The yield of the function is the number of the parenthesis if the  name
       is found, or PCRE_ERROR_NOSUBSTRING otherwise. When duplicate names are
       allowed (PCRE_DUPNAMES is set), it is not defined which of the  numbers
       is  returned  by  pcre_get_stringnumber().  You can obtain the complete
       list by calling pcre_get_stringtable_entries().

       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.
