Joker

http://karottenreibe.github.com/joker

Joker is a simple Wildcard (a.k.a Glob Pattern) implementition for Ruby.

Features

  • Behaves much like Regexp
  • * and ? as wildcard characters
  • \ for escaping: \? matches ?, \* matches *, \[ matches [, \] matches ],
  • But for all other characters: \a matches \a, but not a
  • Wildcards must always match whole string (thus uiae will only match the string uiae)
  • Wildcards can be case insensitive

Installation

gem install joker

Usage

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('*?\\')                  #=> '\\*\\?\\\\'
