NAME

Tcl_StringMatch - test whether a string matches a pattern

SYNOPSIS

#include <tcl.h> int Tcl_StringMatch(string, pattern)

ARGUMENTS

char *string (in) String to test. char *pattern (in) Pattern to match against string. May contain spe- cial characters from the set *?\[]. _________________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION

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.
