Joker is unmaintained. I haven't touched or used it in over 2 years.
Use at your own risk!
Joker is a simple Wildcard (a.k.a Glob Pattern) implementition for Ruby.
- Behaves much like Regexp
?as wildcard characters
- But for all other characters:
\a, but not
- Wildcards must always match whole string
uiaewill only match the string
- Wildcards can be case insensitive
gem install joker
require 'rubygems' require 'joker' wild = Wildcard['Fairy?ake*'] wild =~ 'Fairycake' #=> true wild =~ 'Fairyfakes' #=> true wild =~ 'Fairylake is a cool place' #=> true wild =~ 'Dairycake' #=> false wild =~ 'Fairysteakes' #=> false wild =~ 'fairycake' #=> false wildi = Wildcard['Fairy?ake*\?', true] wildi =~ 'FairyCake?' #=> true wildi =~ 'fairyfakes?' #=> true wildi =~ 'FairyLake IS A COOL Place?' #=> true Wildcard.quote('*?\\') #=> '\\*\\?\\\\'
