Linux 2.6 - man page for glob.h (linux section 7posix)

<glob.h>(P)			    POSIX Programmer's Manual			      <glob.h>(P)

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  pat-
	      tern.

       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_.
