NAME¶PCRE2 - Perl-compatible regular expressions (revised API)
int pcre2_jit_compile(pcre2_code *code, uint32_t options);
DESCRIPTION¶This function requests JIT compilation, which, if the just-in-time compiler is available, further processes a compiled pattern into machine code that executes much faster than the pcre2_match() interpretive matching function. Full details are given in the pcre2jit documentation.
The first argument is a pointer that was returned by a successful call to pcre2_compile(), and the second must contain one or more of the following bits:
PCRE2_JIT_COMPLETE compile code for full matching PCRE2_JIT_PARTIAL_SOFT compile code for soft partial matching PCRE2_JIT_PARTIAL_HARD compile code for hard partial matching
The yield of the function is 0 for success, or a negative error code otherwise. In particular, PCRE2_ERROR_JIT_BADOPTION is returned if JIT is not supported or if an unknown bit is set in options.
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.
