status.i4.v = str_is_possible_regexp_pattern_c(string.i1a.r

	This routine checks a string to determine if it could be a
	regular expression pattern.

	string		string to check
	[length]	length of the string
			(If a value of 0 is passed for this argument,
			 the string argument will be treated as a
			 null terminated string.)
			(default is 0)
	[use_extended]	use extended regular expressions flag
			(TRUE -> use extended regular expressions,
			 FALSE -> don't use extended regular expressions

	This function returns status values as follows:

	TRUE			string could be used as a match pattern
	FALSE			string doesn't appear to be a match pattern

	This function requires the following include files:
