gchar** g_regex_split_full ( const GRegex* regex, const gchar* string, gssize string_len, gint start_position, GRegexMatchFlags match_options, gint max_tokens, GError** error )
Breaks the string on the pattern, and returns an array of the tokens. If the pattern contains capturing parentheses, then the text for each of the substrings will also be returned. If the pattern does not match anywhere in the string, then the whole string is returned as the first token.
As a special case, the result of splitting the empty string “” is an empty vector, not a vector containing a single string. The reason for this special case is that being able to represent an empty vector is typically more useful than consistent handling of empty elements. If you do need to represent empty elements, you’ll need to check for the empty string before calling this function.
A pattern that can match empty strings splits
string into separate
characters wherever it matches the empty string between characters.
For example splitting “ab c” using as a separator “\s*”, you will get
“a”, “b” and “c”.
start_position differs from just passing over a shortened
string and setting
G_REGEX_MATCH_NOTBOL in the case of a pattern
that begins with any kind of lookbehind assertion, such as “\b”.
