int pcre_copy_substring(const char *subject, int *ovector,     int stringcount, int stringnumber, char *buffer,     int buffersize);

DESCRIPTION

subject Subject that has been successfully matched
ovector Offset vector that pcre_exec() used
stringcount Value returned by pcre_exec()
stringnumber Number of the required substring
buffer Buffer to receive the string

The yield is the legnth of the string, PCRE_ERROR_NOMEMORY if the buffer was too small, or PCRE_ERROR_NOSUBSTRING if the string number is invalid.
