constant description since
PREG_PATTERN_ORDER Orders results so that $matches[0] is an array of full pattern matches, $matches[1] is an array of strings matched by the first parenthesized subpattern, and so on. This flag is only used with preg_match_all().  
PREG_SET_ORDER Orders results so that $matches[0] is an array of first set of matches, $matches[1] is an array of second set of matches, and so on. This flag is only used with preg_match_all().  
PREG_OFFSET_CAPTURE See the description of PREG_SPLIT_OFFSET_CAPTURE. 4.3.0
PREG_SPLIT_NO_EMPTY This flag tells preg_split() to return only non-empty pieces.  
PREG_SPLIT_DELIM_CAPTURE This flag tells preg_split() to capture parenthesized expression in the delimiter pattern as well. 4.0.5
PREG_SPLIT_OFFSET_CAPTURE If this flag is set, for every occurring match the appendant string offset will also be returned.
