static boolean stringMatch(String string, String pattern)
This class contains utility routines that do not naturally fit into
other classes in the tcl.lang package. Currently, only one method is
public. However, more are likely to be offered in the future.
- String string ()
String to check for a match with pattern.
- String pattern ()
Pattern to match string against.
string, glob, regexp

The stringMatch method returns a boolean depending on whether
string matches with the pattern according to Tcl's "glob"
rules. For the two strings to match, their contents must be identical
except that the following special sequences may appear in
Matches any sequence of characters in string,
including a null string.
Matches any single character in string.
Matches any character in the set given by chars. If a sequence
of the form
x-y appears in chars, then any character
between x and y, inclusive, will match.
Matches the single character x. This provides a way of
avoiding the special interpretation of the characters
*?\ in pattern.
