Filename matching with shell patterns.
fnmatch(FILENAME, PATTERN) matches according to the local convention.
fnmatchcase(FILENAME, PATTERN) always takes case in account.
The functions operate by translating the pattern into a regular
expression. They cache the compiled regular expressions for speed.
The function translate(PATTERN) returns a regular expression
corresponding to PATTERN. (It does not compile it.)
- filter(names, pat)
- Return the subset of the list NAMES that match PAT
- fnmatch(name, pat)
- Test whether FILENAME matches PATTERN.
Patterns are Unix shell style:
* matches everything
? matches any single character
[seq] matches any character in seq
[!seq] matches any char not in seq
An initial period in FILENAME is not special.
Both FILENAME and PATTERN are first case-normalized
if the operating system requires it.
If you don't want this, use fnmatchcase(FILENAME, PATTERN).
- fnmatchcase(name, pat)
- Test whether FILENAME matches PATTERN, including case.
This is a version of fnmatch() which doesn't case-normalize
- Translate a shell PATTERN to a regular expression.
There is no way to quote meta-characters.
