in reply to string match using with an N in any position

Just one more, not necessarily better or quicker than the other solutions


1. Each of the query strings should be matched only in the beginning of the string 2. The query strings can have an N (and ONLY ONE?) at any position which means for each query string eg. GCGAT we can have NCGAT,GNGAT,GCNAT,GCGNT,GCGAN.

    Why the ".*?$"?

      Just a matter of personal preferences. It will helps me to remember what I was doing in future reviews, but you can avoid it if you want (and gain a little speed).
