341    The output is an integer whose value indicates what character sequences the \R
342    escape sequence matches by default. A value of 0 means that \R matches any
343    Unicode line ending sequence; a value of 1 means that \R matches only CR, LF,

486    match any Unicode newline sequence. The default is specified when PCRE is
