------- Additional Comments From bodewig@apache.org  2003-09-23 15:16 -------
I've always been bad with names and Ant's sources tell a lot of stories about this
(even Erik and Steve tell them in their book, thankfully without pointing fingers).

I admit, I've been the one who called the method match and used a misleading
name.  The behavior we have is more a partialMatch or something - and is the
behavior most of the applications of that method inside Ant need.

So yes, the name is wrong and we can't change for backwards compatibility.

If you need exact matching, anchoring your pattern with ^ and $ is the way to go.
