Q: how does one test string equality but ignore case?
I've got a situation in which I'd like to compare strings but ignore case. Case is significant for
string-equal, and apparently is insensitive to
(string-equal "string" "StrinG") ; => nil (let ((case-fold-search t)) (string-equal "string" "StrinG")) ; => nil
I could always preprocess the strings (say, with
downcase) before comparing them:
(string-equal (downcase "string") (downcase "StrinG")) ; => t
But that seems like overkill to do two extra function calls every time. Have I overlooked the relevant predicate function somewhere?
