       int pcre_get_substring_list(const char *subject,
            int *ovector, int stringcount, const char ***listptr);


       This is a convenience function for extracting a list of all the captured substrings. The arguments are:

         subject       Subject that has been successfully matched
         ovector       Offset vector that pcre_exec used
         stringcount   Value returned by pcre_exec
         listptr       Where to put a pointer to the list

       The  memory  in  which  the substrings and the list are placed is obtained by calling pcre_malloc(). The conve-
       nience function pcre_free_substring_list() can be used to free it when it is no longer needed. A pointer  to  a
       list  of pointers is put in the variable whose address is in listptr. The list is terminated by a NULL pointer.
       The yield of the function is zero on success or PCRE_ERROR_NOMEMORY if sufficient memory could not be obtained.

       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.
