Report Configuration Options for PCRE

Description

Report some of the configuration options of the version of PCRE in use in this R session.

Usage

pcre_config()

Value

A named logical vector, currently with elements

UTF-8

Support for UTF-8 inputs. Required.

Unicode properties

Support for \p{xx} and \P{xx} in regular expressions. Desirable and used by some CRAN packages. As of PCRE2, always present with support for UTF-8.

JIT

Support for just-in-time compilation. Desirable for speed (but only available as a compile-time option on certain architectures).

stack

Does match recursion use a stack (TRUE, the default for PCRE1 and PCRE2 older than 10.30) or a heap? See the discussion at http://www.pcre.org/original/doc/html/pcrestack.html (Added in R 3.4.0.). No longer relevant and always FALSE in PCRE2 since version 10.30 which no longer uses function recursion to remember backtracking positions.
