       #include <pcre.h>

       int pcre_get_substring(const char *subject, int *ovector,
	    int stringcount, int stringnumber,
	    const char **stringptr);

       int pcre16_get_substring(PCRE_SPTR16 subject, int *ovector,
	    int stringcount, int stringnumber,
	    PCRE_SPTR16 *stringptr);

       int pcre32_get_substring(PCRE_SPTR32 subject, int *ovector,
	    int stringcount, int stringnumber,
	    PCRE_SPTR32 *stringptr);


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

	 subject       Subject that has been successfully matched
	 ovector       Offset vector that pcre[16|32]_exec() used
	 stringcount   Value returned by pcre[16|32]_exec()
	 stringnumber  Number of the required substring
	 stringptr     Where to put the string pointer

       The memory in which the substring is  placed  is	 obtained  by  calling
       pcre[16|32]_malloc().  The  convenience	function pcre[16|32]_free_sub‐
       string() can be used to free it when it is no longer needed. The	 yield
       of  the function is the length of the substring, PCRE_ERROR_NOMEMORY if
       sufficient memory could not be obtained, or  PCRE_ERROR_NOSUBSTRING  if
       the string number 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.
