pyarrow.compute.extract_regex(strings, /, pattern, *, options=None, memory_pool=None)#

Extract substrings captured by a regex pattern.

For each string in strings, match the regular expression and, if successful, emit a struct with field names and values coming from the regular expression’s named capture groups. If the input is null or the regular expression fails matching, a null output value is emitted.

Regular expression matching is done using the Google RE2 library.
