Description:
------------
Named subpatterns are not working with the syntax ?<name> or ?'name', 
only working with ?P<name>

The newer syntax's work with version 5.2.9-2 (on windows) and 5.2.11 
(linux), but not version 5.2.12 (red hat)

Reproduce code:
---------------
http://www.coolboxcreative.com/demo/php_bug/source.txt

----------------
id =
classes = test_class

id = div_two
classes = another_class


Actual result:
--------------
nothing outputted


nb. in the application I am using this in I get the following error:

Compilation failed: unrecognized character after (?< at offset 7' in 
....

Check your phpinfo for the version of the PCRE library, I'm guessing that the Redhat version is using an old copy from the system and not the bundled PHP version.

The PCRE library is indeed an older version, so presume bug is down to 
that
