       This  function compiles a regular expression into an internal form. Its
       arguments are:

	 pattern       A zero-terminated string containing the
			 regular expression to be compiled
	 options       Zero or more option bits
	 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_CASELESS	       Do caseless matching
	 PCRE_DOLLAR_ENDONLY   $ not to match newline at end
	 PCRE_DOTALL	       . matches anything including NL
	 PCRE_EXTENDED	       Ignore whitespace and # comments
	 PCRE_EXTRA	       PCRE extra features
				 (not much use currently)
	 PCRE_MULTILINE	       ^ and $ match newlines within data
	 PCRE_NO_AUTO_CAPTURE  Disable numbered capturing paren-
				 theses (named ones available)
	 PCRE_UNGREEDY	       Invert greediness of quantifiers
	 PCRE_UTF8	       Run in UTF-8 mode
	 PCRE_NO_UTF8_CHECK    Do not check the pattern for UTF-8
				 validity (only relevant if
				 PCRE_UTF8 is set)

       PCRE must be compiled with UTF-8 support in order to use PCRE_UTF8  (or

       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.

       There is a complete description of the PCRE API in the pcreapi page.
