in other words, if $var starts with D or L then ....

If StringLeft($var, 1) = "D" Or StringLeft($var, 1) = "L" Then

If you need it to be Case sensitive then replace the = signs with ==

If StringRegExp($var, "\A(D|L)", 0) Then
     ConsoleWrite("Match" & @LF)
Else
     ConsoleWrite("No Match, @error = " & @error & @LF)
EndIf

There are many ways, but I wan in a RegExp mood... :)
