DESCRIPTION

This utility procedure determines whether a string matches a given pattern. If it does, then Tcl_StringMatch returns 1. Otherwise Tcl_StringMatch returns 0. The algorithm used for matching is the same algorithm used in the ‘‘string match’’ Tcl command and is similar to the algorithm used by the C-shell for file name matching; see the Tcl manual entry for details.
