matches()

boolean matches(string input, string pattern [, string modifiers])

The matches function returns true() if input matches the regular expression supplied as pattern as influenced by the value of modifiers, if present; otherwise, it returns false(). Supported modifiers are i ("IGNORECASE"), m ("MULTILINE"), s ("DOTALL") and x ("EXTENDED").

Internally, the FIT Server uses PCRE.
