MariaDB starting with 10.0.5

REGEXP_SUBSTR was introduced in MariaDB 10.0.5.

Syntax

REGEXP_SUBSTR(subject,pattern)

Description

Returns the part of the string subject that matches the regular expression pattern, or an empty string if pattern was not found.

The function follows the case sensitivity rules of the effective collation. Matching is performed case insensitively for case insensitive collations, and case sensitively for case sensitive collations and for binary data.

The collation case sensitivity can be overwritten using the (?i) and (?-i) PCRE flags.

MariaDB 10.0.5 switched to the PCRE regular expression library for enhanced regular expression performance, and REGEXP_SUBSTR was introduced as part of this enhancement.

MariaDB 10.0.11 introduced the default_regex_flags variable to address the remaining compatibilities between PCRE and the old regex library.

Examples

SELECT REGEXP_SUBSTR('ab12cd','[0-9]+');
-> 12

SELECT REGEXP_SUBSTR(
  'See https://mariadb.org/en/foundation/ for details',
  'https?://[^/]*');
-> https://mariadb.org
SELECT REGEXP_SUBSTR('ABC','b');
-> B

SELECT REGEXP_SUBSTR('ABC' COLLATE utf8_bin,'b');
->

SELECT REGEXP_SUBSTR(BINARY'ABC','b');
->

SELECT REGEXP_SUBSTR('ABC','(?i)b');
-> B

SELECT REGEXP_SUBSTR('ABC' COLLATE utf8_bin,'(?+i)b');
-> B
