CURLOPT_FNMATCH_FUNCTION - wildcard match callback

#include <curl/curl.h>
int fnmatch_callback(void *ptr,
                     const char *pattern,
                     const char *string);
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_FNMATCH_FUNCTION,
                          fnmatch_callback);

Pass a pointer to your callback function, which should match the prototype shown above.

This callback is used for wildcard matching.

Return CURL_FNMATCHFUNC_MATCH if pattern matches the string, CURL_FNMATCHFUNC_NOMATCH if not or CURL_FNMATCHFUNC_FAIL if an error occurred.

NULL == an internal function for wildcard matching.
