text pattern matching(wildcard)
I tried to make an matching between two strings the first is Pattern(" * weather * ") and the second is the user's input like User_str(" how is the weather in London? "), so these two strings matched as follows:
the first star * = "how is the"
weather = "weather"
And the second star * = "in London?"
The function should return true if matched and false if not.
I know the idea of this function its an old but I have to build it from scratch for unicode strings with these restrictions
the * if its attached to the text(ex. weather) should match zero or more characters.
the * if its not attached to the text (ex. weather) should match one or more characters.
the ? should match only one character whatever where it is.
If anybody have an idea please let me know.
