EvmEventNameMatch, EvmEventNameMatchStr - Match event name
const char *pattern,
EvmBoolean_t *match ); EvmStatus_t EvmEventNameMatchStr(
const char *pattern,
const char *candidate,
EvmBoolean_t *match );
The event name pattern sought. The pattern may be any valid event name
string. It may include wildcard characters in place of any component.
The event containing the event name to be compared against the pattern.
The result of the match. This operand is set to EvmTRUE if the name
matches the pattern, and to EvmFALSE if it does not. A character
string to be matched against the pattern
Because special matching rules apply when deciding whether a candidate
event name matches a known name, the EVM name matching functions should
be used for matching purposes, rather than the C string comparison
functions (memcpm(), strcmp()) . The EVM functions match an event name
against a supplied pattern, ignoring any trailing appended components
in the candidate name, and correctly matching wildcard characters.
The EvmEventNameMatch function takes an event and an event name pattern
as input, and returns an indication of whether the event contains a
name which matches the pattern in the match output argument. The pat‐
tern may be any valid event name string, and may also include wildcard
characters in place of any component. A wildcard * in the pattern
matches zero or more name components. A ? matches exactly one compo‐
nent. A match occurs if the event name matches all components indicated
by the pattern, even if the name has additional trailing elements.
The EvmEventNameMatchStr function performs the same check as EvmEvent‐
NameMatch, but takes a character string as the candidate event name,
rather than extracting it from a supplied event.
Both functions set the match output argument to EvmTRUE if the name
matches the pattern, and to EvmFALSE if it does not.
The comparison was successful. The value of the match operand indicates
whether the name matches the pattern. The supplied pattern contains
invalid characters. The supplied event does not contain a name.
