                                                in UTF-8 and UTF-32 modes
         PCRE2_EXTRA_BAD_ESCAPE_IS_LITERAL    Treat all invalid escapes as
                                                a literal following character
         PCRE2_EXTRA_MATCH_LINE               Pattern matches whole lines
         PCRE2_EXTRA_MATCH_WORD               Pattern matches "words"
