StrMatch
- string pattern/wildcard matching

String manipulation
(AFL 4.0)


SYNTAX StrMatch(''string'', ''searchstring'')
RETURNS NUMBER
FUNCTION The function returns TRUE (1) or FALSE (0) whenever string matches searchstring or not.

Searchstring is can contain wild-card characters such as:
* - matches any string, including empty strings
? - matches any single character

This function is case sensitive (of course except wildcard characters).

If you want case insensitive matching - convert both string and searchstring to lowercase or uppercase prior to matching (StrToLower/StrToUpper)

EXAMPLE x = StrMatch("Every breath you take", "Every * you *"); // x will be TRUE
x = StrMatch("Every step you make", "Every * you *"); // x will be TRUE
