glob.h, glob - pathname pattern-matching types SYNOPSIS
#include <glob.h> DESCRIPTION
The <glob.h> header defines the structures and symbolic constants used by the glob(3C). The structure type glob_t contains 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 /* lots to reserve at the beginning of gl_pathv */ The following constants are 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 pattern. GLOB_NOESCAPE Disable backslash escaping. GLOB_NOSORT Do not sort the pathnames returned. The following constants are 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. ATTRIBUTES
