I've a problem with printing out the regex matches in the regmatch_t
pmatch[] array returned from a regexec function call.

the code excerpt as below:

void PrintMatch(regmatch_t pmatch[])
  int index = 0;
  int so;
  int eo;
  char match[80];

    so = pmatch[index].rm_so;
    eo = pmatch[index].rm_eo;

    if(so != -1 &&  eo != -1 && so != eo){
      printf("so=%d, eo=%d\n", so, eo);
      strncpy(match, string, (eo - so));
  }while(so != -1 && eo != -1 && so != eo);

It gives the following output:

tyregex> = string helloworld <= some command to set variables.
tyregex> = pattern world
tyregex> !
helloworld <= prints out string for diagnostic purpose.
world <= prints out pattern for diagnostic purpose.
OK <= indicates regex compilation OK
OK <= indicates regex execution OK i.e. pattern matches string.
so=132617, eo=0 <= value of so and eo. Printed by PrintMatch.
Exiting due to signal SIGSEGV <= Program starts to bomb out.

Call frame traceback EIPs:


One thing weird about it is that 'so' is supposed to store the starting
offset and 'eo' the ending offset of the match in the original string. But
how could the starting offset be more than the ending offset? it doesn't
make sense and is obviously wrong.
