Since forever and ever. I found the function in Gambas 1.9.44 which is the
oldest tag in the svn history, over 10 years ago, and its implementation
/basically/ hasn't changed since then.

It doesn't. The LIKE syntax is vastly less powerful and different from
the pcre syntax. The page you linked even tells you the syntax of LIKE
expressions. You can see for yourself that they are incompatible with pcre.

Tobi
