case insensitive match in ksh88 (?) test

case insensitive match in ksh88 (?) test

(OP)

hello,
is there a working "case insensitive" (i:) in ksh88 test? or I can only use other commands for testing (eg. grep -i)?

in ksh93 I get it working:

CODE --> ksh93

# ksh93
# A=tRee;B=Tree;[[ "${A}" = @(${B}) ]] && echo yes || echo not
not
# A=tRee;B=tRee;[[ "${A}" = @(${B}) ]] && echo yes || echo not
yes
# A=tRee;B=Tree;[[ "${A}" = @(~(i:${B})) ]] && echo yes || echo not
yes
# 

in ksh88:

CODE --> ksh88

# A=tRee;B=Tree;[[ "${A}" = @(${B}) ]] && echo yes || echo not
not
# A=tRee;B=tRee;[[ "${A}" = @(${B}) ]] && echo yes || echo not
yes
# A=tRee;B=Tree;[[ "${A}" = @(~(i:${B})) ]] && echo yes || echo not
not
