#include <pcre2.h>

void pcre2_code_free(pcre2_code *code);


This function frees the memory used for a compiled pattern, 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 page and a description of the POSIX API in the pcre2posix page.
