Instance Method

isLike(_:)

Returns a Boolean value that indicates whether the receiver is "like" another given object.

Declaration

func isLike(_ object: String) -> Bool

Parameters

object

The object with which to compare the receiver.

Return Value

true if the receiver is considered to be “like” object, otherwise false.

Discussion

Currently, isLike(_:) messages are never sent to any object from within Cocoa itself.

The default implementation for this method provided by NSObject method returns false. NSString also provides an implementation of this method, which returns true if the receiver matches a pattern described by object.
