#include <pcre2.h>

int pcre2_callout_enumerate(const pcre2_code *code, int (*callback)(pcre2_callout_enumerate_block *, void *), void *callout_data);


This function scans a compiled regular expression and calls the callback() function for each callout within the pattern. The yield of the function is zero for success and non-zero otherwise. The arguments are:

  code           Points to the compiled pattern
  callback       The callback function
  callout_data   User data that is passed to the callback
The callback() function is passed a pointer to a data block containing the following fields (not necessarily in this order):
  uint32_t   version                Block version number
  uint32_t   callout_number         Number for numbered callouts
  PCRE2_SIZE pattern_position       Offset to next item in pattern
  PCRE2_SIZE next_item_length       Length of next item in pattern
  PCRE2_SIZE callout_string_offset  Offset to string within pattern
  PCRE2_SIZE callout_string_length  Length of callout string
  PCRE2_SPTR callout_string         Points to callout string or is NULL
The second argument passed to the callback() function is the callout data that was passed to pcre2_callout_enumerate(). The callback() function must return zero for success. Any other value causes the pattern scan to stop, with the value being passed back as the result of pcre2_callout_enumerate().
