       Tcl_StringMatch, Tcl_StringCaseMatch - test whether a string matches a pattern

       #include <tcl.h>

       Tcl_StringMatch(string, pattern)

       Tcl_StringCaseMatch(string, pattern, nocase)

       char	    *string	       (in)	 String to test.

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

       int	    nocase	       (in)	 Specifies whether the match should be done case-
						 sensitive (0) or case-insensitive (1).

       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 nocase as 1), then  the  string |
       and pattern are essentially matched in the lower case.
