Description Levente Nagy 2013-05-02 04:37:36 UTC
In case if the source is null and the pattern is "[]" it throws ArgumentNullException instead of returning true just like VB6 and .NET

VB6 returns false for eastern arabic numbers but VB.NET returns true.
change \d to [0-9] if it is not needed to match eastern arabic numbers.
I think it should behave like the old VB6 like operator and not like the VB.NET like operator, although it's buggy as well for some other reason:

eastern arabic numerals matching:

Example run:
string: ٣
pattern: #
