       PCRE - Perl-compatible regular expressions


       #include <pcre.h>

       int pcre_exec(const pcre *code, const pcre_extra *extra,
	    const char *subject, int length, int startoffset,
	    int options, int *ovector, int ovecsize);


       This  function  matches	a  compiled regular expression against a given
       subject string, and returns offsets to  capturing  subexpressions.  Its
       arguments are:

	 code	      Points to the compiled pattern
	 extra	      Points to an associated pcre_extra structure,
			or is NULL
	 subject      Points to the subject string
	 length	      Length of the subject string, in bytes
	 startoffset  Offset in bytes in the subject at which to
			start matching
	 options      Option bits
	 ovector      Points to a vector of ints for result offsets
	 ovecsize     Size of the vector (a multiple of 3)

       The options are:

	 PCRE_ANCHORED	    Match only at the first position
	 PCRE_NOTBOL	    Subject is not the beginning of a line
	 PCRE_NOTEOL	    Subject is not the end of a line
	 PCRE_NOTEMPTY	    An empty string is not a valid match
	 PCRE_NO_UTF8_CHECK Do not check the subject for UTF-8
			      validity (only relevant if PCRE_UTF8
			      was set at compile time)

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