[SR-Users] Partial/regex match on hash table key?

Ok, thank you Dmitri.

I'll need to use iteration then, which is ok too.  I have a set of known 
contacts in Horde Groupware (https://www.horde.org/) that I would like to set 
the identity for when the callerid number matches.  That way when someone 
calls, instead of getting "WIRELESS CALLER" for the callerid, I would get 
"John Q Public"

Since the DB query for every incoming call is rather costly, I wanted to use 
something like http://acalustra.com/kamailio-from-tables-to-htables.html but 
store the hashtable like:

key:   1234567
value: John Q Public

Though the $fU might be any of +1234567, 1234567, or 234567 (differing 

I might play with something like:
sht_iterator_start("i1", "h1");
while(sht_iterator_next("i1")) {
    if(h1[$shtitkey(i1)]=~$fU) {
        xlog("CallerID is: $shtitval(i1)\n");
        append_hf("P-Asserted-Identity: tel:$shtitval(i1)\r\n");
