The EasyMock source code

 * Copyright (c) 2001-2006 OFFIS, Tammo Freese.
 * This program is made available under the terms of the MIT License.
package org.easymock;

 * Decides whether an actual argument is accepted.
public interface IArgumentMatcher {
     * Returns whether this matcher accepts the given argument. 
     * <p>
     * Like Object.equals(), it should be aware that the argument passed might 
     * be null and of any type. So you will usually start the method with an 
     * instanceof and/or null check.
     * <p>
     * The method should <b>never assert if the argument doesn't match. It
     * should only return false. EasyMock will take care of asserting if the
     * call is really unexpected.
     * @param argument the argument
     * @return whether this matcher accepts the given argument.
    boolean matches(Object argument);

     * Appends a string representation of this matcher to the given buffer. In case
     * of failure, the printed message will show this string to allow to know which
     * matcher was used for the failing call.
     * @param buffer the buffer to which the string representation is appended.
    void appendTo(StringBuffer buffer);
