command in linux, similar to ckstr in solaris


Hi ALL

I am new to linux.
I just got stuck in one of my ksh script. Do we have any command/utility in linux which is similar to ckstr in solaris.

ckstr would prompt the user for input and test it against some regular expression. (http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E19082-01/...6g5/index.html)

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks

It shouldn't be too difficult to create, in bash it would be something like:

Code:
read -p "[*] please enter something: " ANSWER
if [[ "$ANSWER" =~ <some_regex> ]]
then
  #do something
...
