    Command:

    fnmatch

    
    
    

    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 behavior; 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  by an asterisk (*) or a question mark (?)
                  metacharacter, nor by a bracket  expression  ([])  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 character 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 implemented only 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 nonzero value if there is an error.
    
    
    

    CONFORMING TO

           POSIX.2.  The FNM_FILE_NAME, FNM_LEADING_DIR,  and  FNM_CASEFOLD  flags
           are GNU extensions.
