Hi Terry,

Have you read the following (from regexec topic in the "ILE C Runtime Library" manual):

If subexpression i is contained within another subexpression j, and i
is not contained within any other subexpression that is contained
within j, and a match of subexpression j is reported in pmatch[j],
then the match or non-match of subexpression i reported in pmatch[i]
will be as described in 1. and 2. above, but within the substring
reported in pmatch[j] rather than the whole string.
