PCRE2_NEWLINE_CRLF CR followed by LF only
PCRE2_NEWLINE_ANYCRLF Any of the above

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.
