pyarrow.compute.match_like(strings, /, pattern, *, ignore_case=False, options=None, memory_pool=None)#

Match strings against SQL-style LIKE pattern.

For each string in strings, emit true iff it matches a given pattern at any position. β€˜%’ will match any number of characters, β€˜_’ will match exactly one character, and any other character matches itself. To match a literal β€˜%’, β€˜_’, or β€˜', precede the character with a backslash. Null inputs emit null. The pattern must be given in MatchSubstringOptions.
