native Regex:regex_match(const string, const pattern, &ret = 0, error = "", maxLen = 0, const flags = "");
The string to check.
The regular expression pattern.
Error code, or result state of the match.
Error message, if applicable.
Maximum length of the error buffer.
General flags for the regular expression.
i = Ignore case
m = Multilines (affects ^ and $ so that they match
the start/end of a line rather than matching the
start/end of the string).
s = Single line (affects . so that it matches any character,
even new line characters).
x = Pattern extension (ignore whitespace and # comments).
Matches a string against a regular expression pattern.
If you intend on using the same regular expression pattern
multiple times, consider using regex_compile and regex_match_ex
instead of making this function reparse the expression each time.
Flags only exist in amxmodx 1.8 and later.
You should free the returned handle with regex_free()
when you are done extracting all of the substrings.
-2 = Matching error (error code is stored in ret)
-1 = Error in pattern (error message and offset # in error and ret)
0 = No match.
>1 = Handle for getting more information (via regex_substr)
