       This  manual  page  is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The Linux implementation of
       this interface may differ (consult the corresponding Linux  manual  page  for  details  of
       Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.


       glob.h — pathname pattern-matching types


       #include <glob.h>


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

       The <glob.h> header shall define the glob_t structure type, which shall include  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 <glob.h> header shall define the size_t type as described in <sys/types.h>.

       The  <glob.h> header shall define the following symbolic constants as values for the flags

       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>

       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 <glob.h> header shall define the following symbolic constants as error return values:

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

       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.

       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 *);
