Sorry, i was paiting a mammoth and i forgot something in the docstring:

--8<-----------------------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
 (defmacro with-collect-matches (regexp &optional group &rest body)
   "Collect matches for REGEXP and eval BODY for each match.
 BODY is evaluated with `it' bound to the match.
 Optional GROUP if non-nil, then is the regexp group to save.  Otherwise,
 save the whole match.
 Return a list with the matches."
 --8<-----------------------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

So, for instance:
M-x find-library replace RET
M-: (length (with-collect-matches "^(defun \\(\\S +\\)" 1)) RET
=> 52

M-x find-library replace RET
M-: (length (with-collect-matches "^(defun \\(\\S +\\)" 1
              (with-current-buffer (get-buffer-create "*Matches*")
                (when (string-match "\\`query-" it)
                  (insert (format "%s\n" it)))))
=> 52
;; Same return as before but only write into *Matches* those
;; functions with name starting with "query-".
