wildmatch - script and chart function

The wildmatch function compares the first parameter with all the following ones and returns the number of the expression that matches. It permits the use of wildcard characters ( * and ?) in the comparison strings. * matches any sequence of characters. ? matches any single character. The comparison is case insensitive and insensitive to the Japanese Hiragana and Katakana character systems.


wildmatch( str, expr1 [ , expr2,...exprN ])

If you want to use comparison without wildcards, use the match or mixmatch functions.

Some of the examples in this topic use inline loads. For more information, see Using inline loads to load data.
