       ·      A  string  that begins with a `.´ character. A host
              name is matched if the last components of its  name
              match the specified pattern.  For example, the pat­
              tern    `.tue.nl´    matches    the    host    name

       ·      A  string  that  ends  with a `.´ character. A host
              address is matched  if  its  first  numeric  fields
              match  the  given string.  For example, the pattern
              `131.155.´ matches the address  of  (almost)  every
              host    on   the   Eindhoven   University   network
