pcre2_code_copy


       #include <pcre2.h>

       pcre2_code *pcre2_code_copy(const pcre2_code *code);

DESCRIPTION

       This  function  makes a copy of the memory used for a compiled pattern,
       excluding any memory used by the JIT  compiler.  Without  a  subsequent
       call  to  pcre2_jit_compile(),  the  copy  can be used only for non-JIT
       matching. The pointer to the character tables is copied, not the tables
       themselves  (see pcre2_code_copy_with_tables()). The yield of the func-
       tion is NULL if  code  is  NULL  or  if  sufficient  memory  cannot  be
       obtained.

       There is a complete description of the PCRE2 native API in the pcre2api
       page and a description of the POSIX API in the pcre2posix page.
