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

SYNOPSIS

       #include <pcre2.h>

       void pcre2_jit_free_unused_memory(pcre2_general_context *gcontext);

DESCRIPTION

       This  function  frees  unused  JIT executable memory. The argument is a
       general context, for custom memory management,  or  NULL  for  standard
       memory  management.  JIT memory allocation retains some memory in order
       to improve future JIT compilation  speed.  In  low  memory  conditions,
       pcre2_jit_free_unused_memory()  can  be used to cause this memory to be
       freed.

       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.
