well i need some function, wich could compare two strings.
but i do not need to know, if they are equal, but if they are similar by using asterisk convention.
for example: string *abc is similar, but not equal to dabc.
is any api for it? i mean when windows are searching for a file like 'wi*.com', it will find 'win.com' and much more files with similar name. there should be any api, else it would be so relatively quickly.
