Mbstring doesn't provide support for PCRE.  This is unfortunate since there is (experimental) UTF-8 support in PCRE which is as simple to turn on as flipping a compile flag and specifying an option to pcre_compile()

Since when has PCRE been a multibyte string encoding?
Can you be more specific about what you need?

PHP ships with UTF-8 enabled PCRE by default (if you
use the bundled PCRE), and has done since before 4.2
for unix (4.2 and later for windows).

mbstring != PCRE; their functions are completely different.

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions.  Due to the volume
of reports we can not explain in detail here why your report is not
a bug.  The support channels will be able to provide an explanation
for you.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.
