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

SYNOPSIS

       #include <pcre2.h>

       int pcre2_set_newline(pcre2_compile_context *ccontext,
         uint32_t value);

DESCRIPTION

       This  function  sets  the  newline convention within a compile context.
       This specifies which character(s) are recognized as newlines when  com-
       piling and matching patterns. The second argument must be one of:

         PCRE2_NEWLINE_CR        Carriage return only
         PCRE2_NEWLINE_LF        Linefeed only
         PCRE2_NEWLINE_CRLF      CR followed by LF only
         PCRE2_NEWLINE_ANYCRLF   Any of the above
         PCRE2_NEWLINE_ANY       Any Unicode newline sequence
         PCRE2_NEWLINE_NUL       The NUL character (binary zero)

       The  result  is  zero  for success or PCRE2_ERROR_BADDATA if the second
       argument is invalid.

       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.
