#3239 new feature-request

Allow wildcards in console

Description

It would be useful, at least to me, if wildcards are allowed in console mode. e.g. info *torrent* to have all torrents which contain the word torrents in the name is returned. The tab fill-in feature works well but sometimes the name isn't what you would think.

I will reduce the importance of this feature request. Playing with the current completion feature that doesn't allow use of wildcards, I have found how to use it to accomplish some of what I needed. This does require knowing the very beginning of the torrent name or hash. Modifying the existing function to find the exact search string within the loaded torrents would accomplish the same feature. Granted it may return a longer list, but you can then use the shown torrent data filter the list.
