34 DESCRIPTION
35 </b><br>
36 <P>
37 This function matches a compiled regular expression against a given subject
38 string, using an alternative matching algorithm that scans the subject string
39 just once (<i>not</i> Perl-compatible). Note that the main, Perl-compatible,
40 matching function is <b>pcre[16]_exec()</b>. The arguments for this function
41 are:
42 <pre>
43 <i>code</i> Points to the compiled pattern
44 <i>extra</i> Points to an associated <b>pcre[16]_extra</b> structure,
45 or is NULL
46 <i>subject</i> Points to the subject string
47 <i>length</i> Length of the subject string, in bytes
48 <i>startoffset</i> Offset in bytes in the subject at which to
49 start matching
50 <i>options</i> Option bits
51 <i>ovector</i> Points to a vector of ints for result offsets
52 <i>ovecsize</i> Number of elements in the vector
53 <i>workspace</i> Points to a vector of ints used as working space
54 <i>wscount</i> Number of elements in the vector
55 </pre>
56 The options are:
57 <pre>
58 PCRE_ANCHORED Match only at the first position
59 PCRE_BSR_ANYCRLF \R matches only CR, LF, or CRLF
60 PCRE_BSR_UNICODE \R matches all Unicode line endings
61 PCRE_NEWLINE_ANY Recognize any Unicode newline sequence
62 PCRE_NEWLINE_ANYCRLF Recognize CR, LF, & CRLF as newline sequences
63 PCRE_NEWLINE_CR Recognize CR as the only newline sequence
64 PCRE_NEWLINE_CRLF Recognize CRLF as the only newline sequence
65 PCRE_NEWLINE_LF Recognize LF as the only newline sequence
66 PCRE_NOTBOL Subject is not the beginning of a line
67 PCRE_NOTEOL Subject is not the end of a line
68 PCRE_NOTEMPTY An empty string is not a valid match
69 PCRE_NOTEMPTY_ATSTART An empty string at the start of the subject
70 is not a valid match
71 PCRE_NO_START_OPTIMIZE Do not do "start-match" optimizations
72 PCRE_NO_UTF16_CHECK Do not check the subject for UTF-16
73 validity (only relevant if PCRE_UTF16
74 was set at compile time)
75 PCRE_NO_UTF8_CHECK Do not check the subject for UTF-8
76 validity (only relevant if PCRE_UTF8
77 was set at compile time)
78 PCRE_PARTIAL ) Return PCRE_ERROR_PARTIAL for a partial
79 PCRE_PARTIAL_SOFT ) match if no full matches are found
80 PCRE_PARTIAL_HARD Return PCRE_ERROR_PARTIAL for a partial match
81 even if there is a full match as well
82 PCRE_DFA_SHORTEST Return only the shortest match
83 PCRE_DFA_RESTART Restart after a partial match
84 </pre>
85 There are restrictions on what may appear in a pattern when using this matching
86 function. Details are given in the
87 <a href="pcrematching.html"><b>pcrematching</b></a>
88 documentation. For details of partial matching, see the
89 <a href="pcrepartial.html"><b>pcrepartial</b></a>
90 page.
91 </P>
92 <P>
93 A <b>pcre[16]_extra</b> structure contains the following fields:
94 <pre>
95 <i>flags</i> Bits indicating which fields are set
96 <i>study_data</i> Opaque data from <b>pcre[16]_study()</b>
97 <i>match_limit</i> Limit on internal resource use
98 <i>match_limit_recursion</i> Limit on internal recursion depth
99 <i>callout_data</i> Opaque data passed back to callouts
100 <i>tables</i> Points to character tables or is NULL
101 <i>mark</i> For passing back a *MARK pointer
102 <i>executable_jit</i> Opaque data from JIT compilation
103 </pre>
104 The flag bits are PCRE_EXTRA_STUDY_DATA, PCRE_EXTRA_MATCH_LIMIT,
105 PCRE_EXTRA_MATCH_LIMIT_RECURSION, PCRE_EXTRA_CALLOUT_DATA,
106 PCRE_EXTRA_TABLES, PCRE_EXTRA_MARK and PCRE_EXTRA_EXECUTABLE_JIT. For this
107 matching function, the <i>match_limit</i> and <i>match_limit_recursion</i> fields
108 are not used, and must not be set. The PCRE_EXTRA_EXECUTABLE_JIT flag and
109 the corresponding variable are ignored.
