patcode definition:

^$Character( charsetexpr , expr V "PATCODE" , expr V patcode ) = expr V algoref

This node identifies the pattern testing algorithm that determines which characters of charset match the specified patcode; if this node is not defined, or is the empty string, then no characters in the charset will match that patcode. The patcode truth-value truth of a character char using a nonempty-string pattern testing algorithm pattest may be evaluated by executing the expression: ("S truth="_pattest_"($ASCII(char))"). When truth is "true", char belongs to the specified patcode; when truth is "false", char does not belong to that patcode.
