Not yet... But I'll do it soon.

Hum... my fault I didn't make a search with the good keywords.

But that seems good to add it in PCRE documentation. Because pcrecpp.h include
example code in the header of the file, I did not try pcredemo.c . I don't
think all Windows user will read pcredemo.c ...

Thanks for your reply.
