       FBB::Glob - Wrapper around glob(3) to find files matching a pattern


       #include <bobcat/glob>
       Linking option: -lbobcat


       The FBB::Glob class is a wrapper around the C function glob(3). It returns a list of files
       matching a certain pattern provided to FBB::Glob’s constructors or members.


       All constructors, members, operators and manipulators, mentioned  in  this  man-page,  are
       defined in the namespace FBB.




       This  enumeration,  which  is identical to the stat(3bobcat) Type enumeration, defines the
       following values:

       o      BLOCK_DEVICE: the object represents a block device

       o      CHARACTER_DEVICE: the object represents a character device

       o      DIRECTORY: the object represents a directory

       o      FIFO: the object represents a named pipe (a queue)

       o      REGULAR_FILE: the object represents a regular file

       o      SOCKET: the object represents a socket

       o      SYMBOLIC_LINK: the object represents a symbolic link

       o      ANY: any of the above types


       o      ERR: Return on read errors;

       o      MARK: Append a slash to each name.

       o      NOSORT: Don’t sort the names.

       o      NOESCAPE: Backslashes don’t quote metacharacters.

       o      PERIOD: Leading .-characters can be matched by metachars (i.e., * and ?).


       o      FIRST: Filenames starting with a dot will be listed first. Within this set  and  in
              the leftover-set the relative ordering is maintained.

       o      DEFAULT: Return filenames as they appear in the globbing process.


       o      Glob(std::string const &pattern = "*", int flags = PERIOD, Dots dots = FIRST):
              This constructor (which can also be used as the default constructor) determines all
              elements matching pattern.

              An Exception exception is thrown if the constructor could not  properly complete it

              Multiple flags may be specified, separated by the bitor operator.

              This  constructor  properly  completes  its  task  if only defined Flag values were
              specified and if the glob(3) function returned without errors.

       o      Glob(Type type, std::string const &pattern = "*", int flags = PERIOD, Dots  dots  =
              This  constructor  determines  all elements of pattern matching Type. The specified
              type value may consist of any bitor-ed combination of enum values  defined  by  the
              Type enum. Remaining parameters and

       Glob offers copy and move constructors.


       o      Glob &operator=(Glob const &other):
              The assignment operator is available.

       o      Glob &operator=(Glob &&tmp):
              The move-assignment operator is available.

       o      char const *operator[](size_t idx) const:
              The  element  at  index  position idx is returns as a C string. It returns an empty
              string if idx is or exceeds size().


       o      void verify() const:
              Empty function, kept for backward compatibility.

       o      size_t size() const:
              Returns the number of elements that were detected.

       o      char const *const *begin() const:
              Returns a pointer to the first element that was detected. This pointer can be  used
              in generic algorithms as an output-iterator supporting pointer arithmetic.

       o      char const *const *end() const:
              Returns  a  pointer  beyond the last element that was detected. This pointer can be
              used in generic algorithms as an output-iterator supporting pointer arithmetic.

       o      void swap(Glob &other):
              Swaps the contents of the other object with the current object.


           int main(int argc, char **argv)
               if (argc == 1)
                   cout << "Provide glob-expression as 1st arg\n";
                   return 1;

               cout << "General:\n";

               Glob general;

               for (size_t idx = 0; idx < general.size(); idx++)
                   cout << idx << ": " << general[idx] << endl;

               cout << "Pattern: " << argv[1] << "\n";

               Glob pattern(argv[1], Glob::PERIOD, Glob::DEFAULT);

               for (size_t idx = 0; idx < pattern.size(); idx++)
                   cout << idx << ": " << pattern[idx] << endl;

               return 0;
