       This  is	 a  convenience	 function for extracting a captured substring,
       identified by name, into a given buffer. The arguments are:

	 code	       Pattern that was successfully matched
	 subject       Subject that has been successfully matched
	 ovector       Offset vector that pcre[16|32]_exec() used
	 stringcount   Value returned by pcre[16|32]_exec()
	 stringname    Name of the required substring
	 buffer	       Buffer to receive the string
	 buffersize    Size of buffer

       The yield is the length of the substring,  PCRE_ERROR_NOMEMORY  if  the
       buffer  was  too small, or PCRE_ERROR_NOSUBSTRING if the string name is

       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.
