NAME
       PCRE2 - Perl-compatible regular expressions (revised API)

SYNOPSIS

       #include <pcre2.h>

       pcre2_general_context *pcre2_general_context_create(
         void *(*private_malloc)(PCRE2_SIZE, void *),
         void (*private_free)(void *, void *), void *memory_data);

DESCRIPTION

       This  function creates and initializes a general context. The arguments
       define custom memory management functions and  a  data  value  that  is
       passed  to  them when they are called. The private_malloc() function is
       used to get memory for the context. If either of the  first  two  argu-
       ments  is  NULL,  the  system  memory  management function is used. The
       result is NULL if no memory could be obtained.

       There is a complete description of the PCRE2 native API in the pcre2api
       page and a description of the POSIX API in the pcre2posix page.
