354    The following act immediately they are reached:
355    .sp
356      (*ACCEPT)      force successful match
357      (*FAIL)        force backtrack; synonym (*F)
358    .sp
359    The following act only when a subsequent match failure causes a backtrack to
360    reach them. They all force a match failure, but they differ in what happens
361    afterwards. Those that advance the start-of-match point do so only if the
362    pattern is not anchored.

364      (*COMMIT)      overall failure, no advance of starting point
365      (*PRUNE)       advance to next starting character
366      (*SKIP)        advance start to current matching position
367      (*THEN)        local failure, backtrack to next alternation
