$str.match

Matches a fixed string against a wildcard expression
Usage
$str.match(<expression>,<string>[,<flags>])
Description
Returns 1 if the fixed <string> matches the <expression>, 0 otherwise.
If <flags> contains the flag 'r' then <expression> is treated as a full regular expression otherwise it is treated as a simple wildcard expression containing the classic wildcards '*' and '?'.
If <flags> contains the flag 'e' then only an exact match is considered (e.g. the full <string> is exactly matched by <expression>), otherwise partial matches are allowed too (e.g. <expression> is found inside <string>).
The match is case sensitive.
Syntax Specification
<bool> $str.match(<expression:string>,<string:string>[,<flags:string>])
Examples

    %test = "Hello! My nickname is Pragma"
    if($str.match(Pragma*,%test))echo "Matches Pragma*"
    if($str.match(*Pragma,%test))echo "Matches *Pragma"
    if($str.match(H*y*i?k*a,%test))echo "Matches H*y*i?k*a"
    if($str.match(H*y*i?K*a,%test))echo "Matches H*y*i?K*a"
