       int pcre_get_named_substring(const pcre *code,
            const char *subject, int *ovector,
            int stringcount, const char *stringname,
            const char **stringptr);


       This is a convenience function for extracting a captured substring by name. The arguments are:

         code          Compiled pattern
         subject       Subject that has been successfully matched
         ovector       Offset vector that pcre_exec() used
         stringcount   Value returned by pcre_exec()
         stringname    Name of the required substring
         stringptr     Where to put the string pointer

       The  memory  in  which  the  substring is placed is obtained by calling pcre_malloc(). The convenience function
       pcre_free_substring() can be used to free it when it is no longer needed. The yield  of  the  function  is  the
       length  of  the  extracted  substring,  PCRE_ERROR_NOMEMORY  if  sufficient  memory  could  not be obtained, or
       PCRE_ERROR_NOSUBSTRING if the string name is invalid.

       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.
