locs - stop regular expression matching in a string (LEGACY)


#include <regexp.h>

extern char *locs;


Refer to regexp().


This variable is kept for historical reasons, but may be withdrawn in a future issue.

New applications should use fnmatch(), glob(), regcomp() and regexec(), which provide full internationalised regular expression functionality compatible with the ISO POSIX-2 standard, as described in the XBD specification, Regular Expressions .
