Finding Similar Strings

Can someone tell me if there is a component or share some code that will do the following?

I have a string like this in a stringlist: cw5541-00

and some strings like this in another string list

wecw554100
wecw554103
wecw541200
etc...

I need to be able to search for the first string in the other list. So I need something that will search for most of the original string. like ignoring the -, etc.
