How can I specify a domain parameter or a wildcard character in the WebSetProxy function?

How can I specify a domain parameter or a wildcard character in the WebSetProxy function?

Since Patch 6 for Silk Performer 7.3.1 (SP731_Patch_06_ProxyList) it has been possible to enhance the WebSetProxy function with a domain parameter.

The domain parameter may contain a wildcard (*) character either at the beginning or at the end.
Multiple calls to WebSetProxy can be made, where the latest one has the top priority (proxy stack).
Specifying "" for the proxy means no proxy for the specified domain or domain pattern.

Example:

//use this proxy for all hosts starting with "www" (priority 4)
WebSetProxy(WEB_PROXY_HTTP, "proxy", 8080, "www*"); 

//but go directly to www.microsoft.com (priority 3)
WebSetProxy(WEB_PROXY_HTTP, "", 0, "www.microsoft.com"); 

//use proxy on a different port for all "yahoo.com" domains (priority 2)
WebSetProxy(WEB_PROXY_HTTP, "proxy", 8081, "*yahoo.com"); 

//use proxy on a different port for all "www.yahoo.com" domains (priority 1)
WebSetProxy(WEB_PROXY_HTTP, "proxy", 8082, "www.yahoo.com");
