glob.h(0P)		   POSIX Programmer's Manual		    glob.h(0P)

       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() function.

       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

       The  <glob.h>  header  shall define the following symbolic constants 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

       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  <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-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.

       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 *);
