3.5.45 ‘string-eqv?’ - caseless match

Usage: (= text match)
string-eqv?: Test to see if two strings are equivalent. ‘equivalent’ means the strings match, but without regard to character case and certain characters are considered ‘equivalent’. Viz., ’-’, ’_’ and ’^’ are equivalent. If the arguments are not strings, then the result of the numeric comparison is returned.

This is an overloaded operation. If the arguments are both numbers, then the query is passed through to scm_num_eq_p(), otherwise the result depends on the SCMs being strictly equal.

Arguments:
text - text to test for pattern
match - pattern/substring to search for
