    ILIKE

    Tests whether an expression matches a pattern. The comparison is case-insensitive.

    Syntax

    ILIKE(expression varchar, pattern varchar) → boolean

    • expression: The expression to compare.
    • pattern: The pattern that is compared to the expression.

    Examples

    SELECT ILIKE ('pancake', '%Cake')
    -- True
    

    ILIKE(expression varchar, pattern varchar, escape_character varchar) → boolean

    • expression: The expression to compare.
    • pattern: The pattern that is compared to the expression.
    • escape_character: Putting escape_character before a wildcard in pattern makes ILIKE treat the wildcard as a regular character when it appears in expression.

    Examples

    SELECT ILIKE ('50%_Off', '%50!%%','!')
    -- True
