] (right bracket). Matches characters from the beginning of the string to the bracket. Ignores the characters in the string to the right of the bracket.

To select, sort, or list item-ids, a relational operator precedes the item-id containing the wild cards. Other attributes are identified by either their attribute number or their name as specified in the file dictionary attribute-defining item.
