25.109.1. JOKER Details

[<<<] [>>>]

When a LIKE operator is executed ScriptBasic stores the actual strings that matched the joker and wild card characters from the pattern in an array. Using this function the programcan access the actual value of the n-th string that was matched against the n-th joker or wild card character. For example:

Const nl="\n"
if "file.txt" like "*.*" then
  print "File=",joker(1)," extension=",joker(2),nl
  print "did not match"

will print

File=file extension=txt
