wildmat() seems to do what you want. Here's the head of wildmat.c as
distributed with INN:
/* $Revision: 1.9 $
** Do shell-style pattern matching for ?, \, , and * characters.
** Might not be robust in face of malformed patterns; e.g., "foo[a-"
** could cause a segmentation violation. It is 8bit clean.
** Written by Rich $alz, mirror!rs, Wed Nov 26 19:03:17 EST 1986.
** Rich $alz is now <email@example.com>.
** April, 1991: Replaced mutually-recursive calls with in-line code
** for the star character.
