Please read the pcrestack man page.

Since you mention pcre_exec(), you must be using PCRE1 (the 8.xx
series), which is now obsolescent, having been succeeded by PCRE2 (the
10.xx series) in 2015.

Your pattern and subject string uses a lot of backtracking. In PCRE1,
the system stack is used. You have run out. Tests on my Linux box show
that increasing the stack from the default 8MB to 10MB make the match
succeed (giving a "no match" result).

PCRE2 has been refactored so as not to use the stack in this way. It
uses heap memory instead. This pattern and subject do not crash in

Please read the pcrestack man page.
