#include "pub_tool_basics.h" // UWord
/* Perform totally abstractified sequence matching, of an input
sequence against a pattern sequence. The pattern sequence may
include '*' elements (matches any number of anything) and '?'
elements (matches exactly one element). '*' patterns are matched
frugally, meaning that they are "assigned" the minimum amount of
input needed to make the match work.
This routine is recursive. The recursion depth is equal to the
number of '*' elements in the pattern. There is no guard against
excessive recursion. This function has no global state and so is
thread-safe and re-entrant. (It needs to be, since m_errormgr will
effectively construct two simultaneous calls to it, once to match
at the frame level, and whilst that is happening, once at the
function/object-name level.)
When matchAll is True, the entire input sequence must match the
pattern, else the match fails. When False, it's ok for some tail
of the input sequence to be unused -- so we're only matching a
The pattern array is starts at 'patt' and consists of 'nPatt'
elements each of size 'szbPatt'. For the initial call, pass a
value of zero to 'ixPatt'.
Ditto for input/nInput/szbInput/ixInput.
pIsStar should return True iff the pointed-to pattern element is
conceptually a '*'.
pIsQuery should return True iff the pointed-to-pattern element is
conceptually a '?'.
pattEQinp takes a pointer to a pattern element and a pointer to an
input element. It should return True iff they are considered
equal. Note that the pattern element is guaranteed to be neither
(conceptually) '*' nor '?', so it must be a literal (in the sense
that all the input sequence elements are literal).
input might be lazily constructed when pattEQinp is called.
For lazily constructing the input element, the two last arguments
of pattEQinp are the inputCompleter and the index of the input
element to complete.
inputCompleter can be NULL.
