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_.
