Testing a string in a variable
 
I hope I can explain this well enough to get some help.


I'm using a trigger to capture some text and put it into a variable

for example

ITEM_A big round apple

I trigger on ITEM_&item

#SHOW @item has A big round apple

np so far ...


now if I want to perform an IF test on the variable @item


#IF (@item="*apple") {do something} {do nothing}

How can I use a wildcard to just test for the presence of apple in that variable without having to test #IF (@item="A big round apple") etc.etc..



Thanks
