NAME

       glob.h - pathname pattern-matching types

SYNOPSIS

       #include <glob.h>

DESCRIPTION

       The  <glob.h> header shall define the structures and symbolic constants
       used by the glob() function.

       The structure type glob_t shall contain at least the following members:

              size_t   gl_pathc Count of paths matched by pattern.
              char   **gl_pathv Pointer to a list of matched pathnames.
              size_t   gl_offs  Slots to reserve at the beginning of gl_pathv.

       The  following  constants  shall  be  provided  as values for the flags
       argument:

       GLOB_APPEND
              Append generated pathnames to those previously obtained.

       GLOB_DOOFFS
              Specify how many null  pointers  to  add  to  the  beginning  of
              gl_pathv.

       GLOB_ERR
              Cause glob() to return on error.

       GLOB_MARK
              Each  pathname  that  is  a directory that matches pattern has a
              slash appended.

       GLOB_NOCHECK
              If pattern does not match  any  pathname,  then  return  a  list
              consisting of only pattern.

       GLOB_NOESCAPE
              Disable backslash escaping.

       GLOB_NOSORT
              Do not sort the pathnames returned.

       The following constants shall be defined as error return values:

       GLOB_ABORTED
              The  scan  was  stopped because GLOB_ERR was set or (*errfunc)()
              returned non-zero.

       GLOB_NOMATCH
              The  pattern  does  not  match  any   existing   pathname,   and
              GLOB_NOCHECK was not set in flags.

       GLOB_NOSPACE
              An attempt to allocate memory failed.

       GLOB_NOSYS
              Reserved.

       The following shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as
       macros. Function prototypes shall be provided.

              int  glob(const char *restrict, int, int (*)(const char *, int),
                       glob_t *restrict);
              void globfree (glob_t *);

       The implementation may define  additional  macros  or  constants  using
       names beginning with GLOB_.
