NAME
    String::Wildcard::Bash - Bash wildcard string routines

VERSION
    This document describes version 0.044 of String::Wildcard::Bash (from
    Perl distribution String-Wildcard-Bash), released on 2022-08-06.

SYNOPSIS
        use String::Wildcard::Bash qw(
            $RE_WILDCARD_BASH
            contains_wildcard
            convert_wildcard_to_sql

        );

        say 1 if contains_wildcard(""));      # -> 0
        say 1 if contains_wildcard("ab*"));   # -> 1
        say 1 if contains_wildcard("ab\\*")); # -> 0

        say convert_wildcard_to_sql("foo*");  # -> "foo%"

        say convert_wildcard_to_re("foo*");   # -> "foo.*"

DESCRIPTION
VARIABLES
  $RE_WILDCARD_BASH
FUNCTIONS
  contains_wildcard
    Usage:

     $bool = contains_wildcard($wildcard_str)

    Return true if $str contains wildcard pattern. Wildcard patterns include
    *joker* such as "*" (meaning zero or more of any characters) and "?"
    (exactly one of any character), *character class* "[...]", and *brace*
    "{...,}" (brace expansion). A pattern can be escaped using a bacslash so
    it becomes literal, e.g. "foo\*" does not contain wildcard because it's
    "foo" followed by a literal asterisk "*".

    Aside from the abovementioned wildcard patterns, bash does other types
    of expansions/substitutions too, but these are not considered wildcard.
    These include tilde expansion (e.g. "~" becomes "/home/alice"),
    parameter and variable expansion (e.g. $0 and $HOME), arithmetic
    expression (e.g. "$[1+2]"), or history ("!").

    Although this module has 'Bash' in its name, this set of wildcards
    should be applicable to other Unix shells. Haven't checked completely
    though.

    For more specific needs, e.g. you want to check if a string just
    contains joker and not other types of wildcard patterns, use
    "$RE_WILDCARD_BASH" directly.

  contains_brace_wildcard
    Like "contains_wildcard", but only return true if string contains brace
    ("{...,}") wildcard pattern.

  contains_class_wildcard
    Like "contains_wildcard", but only return true if string contains
    character class ("[...]") wildcard pattern.

  contains_joker_wildcard
    Like "contains_wildcard", but only return true if string contains any of
    the joker ("?", "*", or "**") wildcard patterns.

  contains_qmark_wildcard
    Like "contains_wildcard", but only return true if string contains the
    question mark joker ("?") wildcard pattern.

  contains_glob_wildcard
    Like "contains_wildcard", but only return true if string contains the
    glob joker ("*", and not "**") wildcard pattern.

  contains_globstar_wildcard
    Like "contains_wildcard", but only return true if string contains the
    globstar joker ("**" and not "*") wildcard pattern.

  convert_wildcard_to_sql
    Usage:

     $sql_str = convert_wildcard_to_sql($wildcard_str);

    Convert bash wildcard to SQL pattern. This includes:

    *   converting unescaped "*" to "%"

    *   converting unescaped "?" to "_"

    *   escaping unescaped "%"

    *   escaping unescaped "_"

    Unsupported constructs will cause the function to die.

  convert_wildcard_to_re
    Usage:

     $re_str = convert_wildcard_to_re([ \%opts, ] $wildcard_str);

    Convert bash wildcard to regular expression string.

    Known options:

    *   brace

        Bool. Default is true. Whether to expand braces or not. If set to
        false, will simply treat brace as literals.

        Examples:

         convert_wildcard_to_re(            "{a,b}"); # => "(?:a|b)"
         convert_wildcard_to_re({brace=>0}, "{a,b}"); # => "\\{a\\,b\\}"

    *   dotglob

        Bool. Default is false. Whether joker "*" (asterisk) will match a
        dot file. The default behavior follows bash; that is, dot file must
        be matched explicitly with ".*".

        This setting is similar to shell behavior (shopt) setting "dotglob".

        Examples:

         convert_wildcard_to_re({}          , '*a*'); # => "[^.][^/]*a[^/]*"
         convert_wildcard_to_re({dotglob=>1}, '*a*'); # =>     "[^/]*a[^/]*"

    *   globstar

        Bool. Default is false. Whether globstar ("**") can match across
        subdirectories (matches path separator). The default behavior
        follows bash; that is, globstar option is off and "**" behaves like
        "*".

        This setting is similar to shell behavior (shopt) setting
        "globstar".

         convert_wildcard_to_re({},                         '*'); # => "[^.][^/]*"
         convert_wildcard_to_re({},                        '**'); # => "[^.][^/]*"
         convert_wildcard_to_re({globstar=>1},             '**'); # => "(?:[^/.][^/]*)(?:/+[^/.][^/]*)*"
         convert_wildcard_to_re({globstar=>1, dotglob=>1}, '**'); # => ".*"

    *   path_separator

        String, 1 character. Default is "/". Can be used to customize the
        path separator.

SEE ALSO
    Regexp::Wildcards can also convert a string with wildcard pattern to
    equivalent regexp pattern, like "convert_wildcard_to_re". Can handle
    Unix wildcards as well as SQL and DOS/Win32. As of this writing (v1.05),
    it does not handle character class ("[...]") and interprets brace
    expansion differently than bash. String::Wildcard::Bash's
    "convert_wildcard_to_re" follows bash behavior more closely and also
    provides more options.

    Other "String::Wildcard::*" modules.

CONTRIBUTING
    To contribute, you can send patches by email/via RT, or send pull
    requests on GitHub.

    Most of the time, you don't need to build the distribution yourself. You
    can simply modify the code, then test via:

     % prove -l

    If you want to build the distribution (e.g. to try to install it locally
    on your system), you can install Dist::Zilla,
    Dist::Zilla::PluginBundle::Author::PERLANCAR, and sometimes one or two
    other Dist::Zilla plugin and/or Pod::Weaver::Plugin. Any additional
    steps required beyond that are considered a bug and can be reported to
    me.
