GLOB (VII) 6/15/72 GLOB (VII) NAME glob -- generate command arguments SYNOPSIS /etc/glob DESCRIPTION glob is used to expand arguments to the shell containing "*", '[', or "?". It is passed the argument list containing the metacharacters; glob expands the list and calls the command itself. The actions of glob are detailed in the Shell writeup. FILES found in /etc/glob SEE ALSO sh(I) DIAGNOSTICS "No match", "No command", "No directory" BUGS If any of '*', '[', or '?' occurs both quoted and unquoted in the original command line, even the quoted metacharacters are expanded. glob gives the "No match" diagnostic only if no arguments at all result. This is never the case if there is any argument without a metacharacter.
