I have done some testing with clitar with regex and mask_match.
Boy, is regexec slow :-(
mask_match is much faster, but you cannot do the following with mask_match:
smbclient \\\\serv\service -TcrX fred.tar ".*.(obj|lis)" to exclude all
.obj and .lis files ...
I have found syntax differences as well, where Linux will accept
"*.(obj|lis)" while Digital UNIX wants ".*.(obj|lis)"
