PCRE2 - Perl-compatible regular expressions (revised API)


       #include <pcre2.h>

       int32_t pcre2_serialize_decode(pcre2_code **codes,
         int32_t number_of_codes, const uint8_t *bytes,
         pcre2_general_context *gcontext);


       This function decodes a serialized set of compiled patterns back into a
       list of individual patterns. This is possible only on a  host  that  is
       running  the  same version of PCRE2, with the same code unit width, and
       the host  must  also  have  the  same  endianness,  pointer  width  and
       PCRE2_SIZE type. The arguments for pcre2_serialize_decode() are:

         codes            pointer to a vector in which to build the list
         number_of_codes  number of slots in the vector
         bytes            the serialized byte stream
         gcontext         pointer to a general context or NULL

       The  bytes  argument  must point to a block of data that was originally
       created by pcre2_serialize_encode(), though it may have been  saved  on
       disc or elsewhere in the meantime. If there are more codes in the seri-
       alized data than slots in the list, only those compiled  patterns  that
       will  fit  are  decoded. The yield of the function is the number of de-
       coded patterns, or one of the following negative error codes:

         PCRE2_ERROR_BADDATA   number_of_codes is zero or less
         PCRE2_ERROR_BADMAGIC  mismatch of id bytes in bytes
         PCRE2_ERROR_BADMODE   mismatch of variable unit size or PCRE version
         PCRE2_ERROR_MEMORY    memory allocation failed
         PCRE2_ERROR_NULL      codes or bytes is NULL

       PCRE2_ERROR_BADMAGIC may mean that the data is corrupt, or that it  was
       compiled on a system with different endianness.

       There is a complete description of the PCRE2 native API in the pcre2api
       page and a description of the serialization functions in the pcre2seri-
       alize page.
