SYNOPSIS

       #include <pcre.h>

       pcre *pcre_compile2(const char *pattern, int options,
            int *errorcodeptr,
            const char **errptr, int *erroffset,
            const unsigned char *tableptr);

       pcre16 *pcre16_compile2(PCRE_SPTR16 pattern, int options,

            const unsigned char *tableptr);

DESCRIPTION

       This  function  compiles a regular expression into an internal form. It
       is the same as pcre[16]_compile(),  except  for  the  addition  of  the
       errorcodeptr argument. The arguments are:

         pattern       A zero-terminated string containing the
                         regular expression to be compiled
         options       Zero or more option bits
         errorcodeptr  Where to put an error code
         errptr        Where to put an error message
         erroffset     Offset in pattern where error was found
         tableptr      Pointer to character tables, or NULL to
                         use the built-in default

       The option bits are:

         PCRE_ANCHORED           Force pattern anchoring
         PCRE_AUTO_CALLOUT       Compile automatic callouts
         PCRE_BSR_ANYCRLF        \R matches only CR, LF, or CRLF
         PCRE_BSR_UNICODE        \R matches all Unicode line endings
         PCRE_CASELESS           Do caseless matching
         PCRE_DOLLAR_ENDONLY     $ not to match newline at end
         PCRE_DOTALL             . matches anything including NL
         PCRE_DUPNAMES           Allow duplicate names for subpatterns
         PCRE_EXTENDED           Ignore white space and # comments
         PCRE_EXTRA              PCRE extra features
                                   (not much use currently)
         PCRE_FIRSTLINE          Force matching to be before newline
         PCRE_JAVASCRIPT_COMPAT  JavaScript compatibility
         PCRE_MULTILINE          ^ and $ match newlines within data
         PCRE_NEWLINE_ANY        Recognize any Unicode newline sequence
         PCRE_NEWLINE_ANYCRLF    Recognize CR, LF, and CRLF as newline
                                   sequences
         PCRE_NEWLINE_CR         Set CR as the newline sequence
         PCRE_NEWLINE_CRLF       Set CRLF as the newline sequence
         PCRE_NEWLINE_LF         Set LF as the newline sequence
         PCRE_NO_AUTO_CAPTURE    Disable numbered capturing paren-
                                   theses (named ones available)

       PCRE_NO_UTF8/16_CHECK, and with UCP support if PCRE_UCP is used.

       The yield of the function is a pointer to a private data structure that
       contains  the  compiled pattern, or NULL if an error was detected. Note
       that compiling regular expressions with one version  of  PCRE  for  use
       with  a  different  version  is  not  guaranteed  to work and may cause
       crashes.

       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.
