       PCRE2 - Perl-compatible regular expressions (revised API)


       #include <pcre2.h>

       pcre2_jit_stack *pcre2_jit_stack_create(PCRE2_SIZE startsize,
         PCRE2_SIZE maxsize, pcre2_general_context *gcontext);


       This function is used to create a stack for use by the code compiled by
       the JIT compiler. The first two arguments are a starting size  for  the
       stack,  and  a  maximum  size to which it is allowed to grow. The final
       argument is a general context, for memory allocation functions, or NULL
       for  standard  memory  allocation.  The result can be passed to the JIT
       run-time code by  calling  pcre2_jit_stack_assign()  to  associate  the
       stack  with  a  compiled  pattern,  which  can  then  be  processed  by
       pcre2_match() or pcre2_jit_match().  A maximum stack size of 512KiB  to
       1MiB  should be more than enough for any pattern. For more details, see
       the pcre2jit page.

       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.
