Class Overview

A simple pattern matcher, which is safe to use on untrusted data: it does not provide full reg-exp support, only simple globbing that can not be used maliciously.

Summary

Constants
int PATTERN_LITERAL Pattern type: the given pattern must exactly match the string it is tested against.
int PATTERN_PREFIX Pattern type: the given pattern must match the beginning of the string it is tested against.
int PATTERN_SIMPLE_GLOB Pattern type: the given pattern is interpreted with a simple glob syntax for matching against the string it is tested against.

Constants

public static final int PATTERN_LITERAL

Added in API level 1

Pattern type: the given pattern must exactly match the string it is tested against.

Constant Value: 0 (0x00000000)

public static final int PATTERN_PREFIX

Added in API level 1

Pattern type: the given pattern must match the beginning of the string it is tested against.

Constant Value: 1 (0x00000001)

public static final int PATTERN_SIMPLE_GLOB

Added in API level 1

Pattern type: the given pattern is interpreted with a simple glob syntax for matching against the string it is tested against. In this syntax, you can use the '*' character to match against zero or more occurrences of the character immediately before. If the character before it is '.' it will match any character. The character '\' can be used as an escape. This essentially provides only the '*' wildcard part of a normal regexp.

Constant Value: 2 (0x00000002)

Fields

public static final Creator<PatternMatcher> CREATOR

Added in API level 1

Public Constructors

public PatternMatcher (String pattern, int type)

Added in API level 1

Parameters
pattern
type

public PatternMatcher (Parcel src)

Added in API level 1

Parameters
src

Public Methods

public int describeContents ()

Added in API level 1

Describe the kinds of special objects contained in this Parcelable's marshalled representation.

Returns
int a bitmask indicating the set of special object types marshalled by the Parcelable.

public final String getPath ()

Added in API level 1

Returns
String

public final int getType ()

Added in API level 1

Returns
int

public boolean match (String str)

Added in API level 1

Parameters
str
Returns
boolean

public String toString ()

Added in API level 1

Returns a string containing a concise, human-readable description of this object. Subclasses are encouraged to override this method and provide an implementation that takes into account the object's type and data. The default implementation is equivalent to the following expression:

   getClass().getName() + '@' + Integer.toHexString(hashCode())

See Writing a useful toString method if you intend implementing your own toString method.

Returns
String a printable representation of this object.

public void writeToParcel (Parcel dest, int flags)

Added in API level 1

Flatten this object in to a Parcel.

Parameters
dest The Parcel in which the object should be written.
flags Additional flags about how the object should be written. May be 0 or PARCELABLE_WRITE_RETURN_VALUE.
