RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for fnmatch (redhat section 3)

FNMATCH(3)			    Linux Programmer's Manual			       FNMATCH(3)

NAME
       fnmatch - match filename or pathname

SYNOPSIS
       #include <fnmatch.h>

       int fnmatch(const char *pattern, const char *string, int flags);

DESCRIPTION
       The  fnmatch()  function  checks whether the string argument matches the pattern argument,
       which is a shell wildcard pattern.

       The flags argument modifies the behaviour; it is the bitwise OR of zero	or  more  of  the
       following flags:

       FNM_NOESCAPE
	      If this flag is set, treat backslash as an ordinary character, instead of an escape
	      character.

       FNM_PATHNAME
	      If this flag is set, match a slash in string only with a slash in pattern and  not,
	      for example, with a [] - sequence containing a slash.

       FNM_PERIOD
	      If  this	flag  is  set,	a leading period in string has to be matched exactly by a
	      period in pattern.  A period is considered to be leading if it is the first charac-
	      ter  in string, or if both FNM_PATHNAME is set and the period immediately follows a
	      slash.

       FNM_FILE_NAME
	      This is a GNU synonym for FNM_PATHNAME.

       FNM_LEADING_DIR
	      If this flag (a GNU extension) is set, the pattern is considered to be  matched  if
	      it matches an initial segment of string which is followed by a slash.  This flag is
	      mainly for the internal use of glibc and is only implemented in certain cases.

       FNM_CASEFOLD
	      If this flag (a GNU extension) is set, the pattern is matched case-insensitively.

RETURN VALUE
       Zero if string matches pattern, FNM_NOMATCH if there is no match or another non-zero value
       if there is an error.

CONFORMING TO
       ISO/IEC	9945-2:  1993  (POSIX.2).   The  FNM_FILE_NAME, FNM_LEADING_DIR, and FNM_CASEFOLD
       flags are GNU extensions.
