Could anyone show me a simple example of regex or pcre program on linux C?
 
I am trying to use regex or pcre to find out the matched from multiple textfiles. Could anyone share me a example of how to write a relative program on linux C? Thanks in advance.

pcre comes with a demo program.

why following program can't work?
#include<stdio>
#include<sys/types.h>
#include<regex.h>

int main()
{**int status;
char str[]="abcd";
char pattern[]="a.";
* **regex_t *preg;
* **regcomp(preg, pattern, REG_EXTENDED|REG_NOSUB)
status=regexec(preg,str,1,NULL,0);
* * while(status==0) printf("ok");
regfree(preg);
}

It crashes because the program does not allocate space for the pattern storage area that preg points to. With this allocated, it will work:

Code:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <regex.h>
int main()
{
    int status;
    char str[]="abcd";
    char pattern[]="a.";
    regex_t reg;
    regcomp(&reg, pattern, REG_EXTENDED|REG_NOSUB);
    status=regexec(&reg,str,1,NULL,0);
    if (status==0)
        printf("match\n");
    else
        printf("no match\n");
    regfree(&reg);
}
