 +======Synopsis:​======
 +$__getmatches__(<​array>​ <​pattern>​)
 +
 +======Technical:​======
 +This function treats the items in array as literal strings, and returns
 +a word list of item values such that
 +
 + for i in ($getrmatches(<​array>​ <​string>​)) {
 + if (getitem(<​array>​ $i) =~ <​pattern>​) {
 + echo True
 + } else {
 + echo False
 + }
 + }
 +
 +only outputs True and enver False. ​ This is the reverse of [[getrmatches]].
 +
 +======Practical:​======
 +The $__getmatches__() function is used to retrieve all items in the given
 +array that match the given pattern. ​ Similarly, $__getrmatches__() is used
 +to retrieve all items that match the given string.
 +
 +======Returns:​======
 +list of item numbers corresponding to matches
