comparehosts

Syntax
int comparehosts(hoststring, hostpattern)
Description

comparehosts checks whether a host string (either host name or IP string) matches a host definition, which could be a host name (such as, host1.a.b.com), IP address (such as, 10.10.10.1), netgroup (such as, @mygroup1), host pattern (such as, *.a.b.com) or IP address (such as, 10.10.10.*).

This function honors the value of short names defined in pm.settings when resolving host names.

Returns 1 if a match is found, 0 if no match is found.

Example
if (comparehosts(submithost,"*.a.b.com")) 
   { 
      ... 
   }

datecmp

Syntax
int datecmp(date1, date2)
Description

datecmp compares the two dates, which must be in the format YYYY/MM/DD or YY/MM/DD (in which case 2000 is added to the year).

This function returns these values:

  • -1: date1 < date2
  • 1: date1 > date2
  • 0: date1 = date2
Example
if (datecmp(startdate, enddate) >=0) 
   { 
      reject “startdate must be before enddate”; 
   }
