FNMATCH(3)		   Linux Programmer's Manual		    FNMATCH(3)

NAME
       fnmatch - match filename or pathname

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.
