        bwild - Bacula's 'wildcard' engine


       bwild [options] -f <data-file>


       This manual page documents briefly the bwild command.
       This  is  a  simple  program  that  will  allow  you  to test wild-card
       expressions against a file of data.


       A summary of options is included below.

       -?     Show version and usage of program.

       -d nn  Set debug level to nn.

       -dt    Print timestamp in debug output

       -f <data-file>
              The data-file is a filename that contains lines of  data  to  be
              matched  (or not) against one or more patterns. When the program
              is run, it will prompt you for a wild-card pattern,  then  apply
              it  one  line  at a time against the data in the file. Each line
              that matches will be printed preceded by its  line  number.  You
              will then be prompted again for another pattern.
              Enter  an empty line for a pattern to terminate the program. You
              can print only lines that do not match by using the  -n  option,
              and  you  can  suppress  printing  of  line  numbers with the -l

       -n     Print lines that do not match

       -l     Suppress lines numbers.

       -i     use case insensitive match.
