Tcl_StringMatch, Tcl_StringCaseMatch -
test whether a string matches a pattern
|String to test.|
|Pattern to match against string. May contain special characters from the set *?\.|
|OR-ed combination of match flags, currently only TCL_MATCH_NOCASE. 0 specifies a case-sensitive search.|
This utility procedure determines whether a string matches a given pattern. If it does, then Tcl_StringMatch returns 1. Otherwise Tcl_StringMatch returns 0. The algorithm used for matching is the same algorithm used in the string match Tcl command and is similar to the algorithm used by the C-shell for file name matching; see the Tcl manual entry for details.
In Tcl_StringCaseMatch, the algorithm is the same, but you have the option to make the matching case-insensitive. If you choose this (by passing TCL_MATCH_NOCASE), then the string and pattern are essentially matched in the lower case.
