       #include <pcre.h>

       int pcre_refcount(pcre *code, int adjust);


       This function is used to maintain a reference count inside a data block
       that contains a compiled pattern. Its arguments are:

         code                      Compiled regular expression
         adjust                    Adjustment to reference value

       The yield of the function is the adjusted  reference  value,  which  is
       constrained to lie between 0 and 65535.

       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.
