The method implemented few minutes ago is based on that, but instead to change 
all "if" to "case" a function based in "case" string text has been added and 
that function is used inside the "if".

_IS_()  # Function to test build scripts names
  # Returns substr $2 or null str
  # Must use string testing
  case $1 in
    *$2*) echo "$2" ;;
       *) echo ""   ;;

    if [[ `_IS_ $i adjusting` ]] ; then

IMHO, that is the more cleanest, readable and portable solution.

Many thanks for your inputs,  especially to George B. for send to me several 
different implementations and solutions, included that.
