prifilt()

Purpose

prifilt(constant)

Mimics a traditional PRI-based filter (like “*.*” or “mail.info”). The traditional filter string must be given as a constant string. Dynamic string evaluation is not permitted (for performance reasons).

Example

In this example true would be returned on an auth event.

prifilt("auth,authpriv.*")
