NAME¶PCRE2 - Perl-compatible regular expressions (revised API)
PCRE2_SPTR pcre2_get_mark(pcre2_match_data *match_data);
DESCRIPTION¶After a call of pcre2_match() that was passed the match block that is this function's argument, this function returns a pointer to the last (*MARK), (*PRUNE), or (*THEN) name that was encountered during the matching process. The name is zero-terminated, and is within the compiled pattern. The length of the name is in the preceding code unit. If no name is available, NULL is returned.
After a successful match, the name that is returned is the last one on the matching path. After a failed match or a partial match, the last encountered name is returned.
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.
