The glob() function searches a character string for a specific shell-style pattern. glob() is often used to match patterns to file names because the patterns that are used are the same patterns that are used by the Unix/Linux shell file name matching algorithms.

For more information on creating search patterns, please see Other Programming Considerations and quote.

result = glob (pattern, string);
