NAME
       Tcl_StringMatch, Tcl_StringCaseMatch - test whether a string matches a pattern

SYNOPSIS
       #include <tcl.h>

       int
       Tcl_StringMatch(str, pattern)

       int
       Tcl_StringCaseMatch(str, pattern, flags)

ARGUMENTS
       const char *str (in)		 String to test.

       const char *pattern (in) 	 Pattern  to  match  against string.  May contain special
					 characters from the set *?\[].

       int flags (in)			 OR-ed	combination  of  match	flags,	 currently   only
					 TCL_MATCH_NOCASE.  0 specifies a case-sensitive search.

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.

       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.

KEYWORDS
