       pattern	     The  event	 name  pattern sought.	The pattern may be any
		     valid event name string.  It may include wildcard charac‐
		     ters in place of any component.

       event	     The  event	 containing  the  event	 name  to  be compared
		     against the pattern.

       match	     The result of the match. This operand is set  to  if  the
		     name matches the pattern, and to if it does not.

       candidate     A character string to be matched against the pattern

       Because	special matching rules apply when deciding whether a candidate
       event name matches a known name, the EVM name matching functions should
       be  used	 for  matching	purposes,  rather than the C string comparison
       functions The EVM functions match an event name against a supplied pat‐
       tern,  ignoring any trailing appended components in the candidate name,
       and correctly matching wildcard characters.

       The function takes an event and an event name  pattern  as  input,  and
       returns	an  indication	of  whether  the  event	 contains a name which
       matches the pattern in the match output argument.  The pattern  may  be
       any  valid  event name string, and may also include wildcard characters
       in place of any component.  A wildcard in the pattern matches  zero  or
       more name components.  A matches exactly one component.	A match occurs
       if the event name matches all components indicated by the pattern, even
       if the name has additional trailing elements.

       The function performs the same check as but takes a character string as
       the candidate event name, instead of  extracting	 the  candidate	 event
       name from a supplied event.

       Both functions set the match output argument to if the name matches the
       pattern, and to if it does not.

       The operation completed without error.  The comparison was  successful.

       One of the arguments to the function is invalid.

       The supplied event does not contain a name.
