Section (3) pcre2_code_free


Linux manual pages Section 3  

Name

PCRE2 — Perl-compatible regular expressions (revised API)

Synopsis

#include <pcre2.h>
void pcre2_code_free( pcre2_code *code);
 

DESCRIPTION

If code is NULL, this function does nothing. Otherwise, code must point to a compiled pattern. This function frees its memory, including any memory used by the JIT compiler. If the compiled pattern was created by a call to pcre2_code_copy_with_tables(), the memory for the character tables is also freed.

There is a complete description of the PCRE2 native API in the pcre2api(3) page and a description of the POSIX API in the pcre2posix(3) page.
