VBScript quotemeta function

A VBScript equivalent of PHP’s quotemeta

Function quotemeta(byVal str)

    Dim pattern : pattern = array("¥",".","+","*","?","[","^","]","$","(",")")

    Dim key
    For key = 0 to uBound(pattern)
        str = Replace(str, pattern(key),"¥" & pattern(key))
    quotemeta = str

End Function
