NAME

File::DosGlob - DOS like globbing and then some


SYNOPSIS

    require 5.004;
    
    # override CORE::glob in current package
    use File::DosGlob 'glob';
    
    # override CORE::glob in ALL packages (use with extreme caution!)
    use File::DosGlob 'GLOBAL_glob';

    @perlfiles = glob  "..\\pe?l/*.p?";
    print <..\\pe?l/*.p?>;
    
    # from the command line (overrides only in main::)
    > perl -MFile::DosGlob=glob -e "print <../pe*/*p?>"


DESCRIPTION

A module that implements DOS-like globbing with a few enhancements. It is largely compatible with perlglob.exe (the M$ setargv.obj version) in all but one respect--it understands wildcards in directory components.

For example, <..\\l*b\\file/*glob.p?> will work as expected (in that it will find something like '..\lib\File/DosGlob.pm' alright). Note that all path components are case-insensitive, and that backslashes and forward slashes are both accepted, and preserved. You may have to double the backslashes if you are putting them in literally, due to double-quotish parsing of the pattern by perl.

Spaces in the argument delimit distinct patterns, so glob('*.exe *.dll') globs all filenames that end in .exe or .dll. If you want to put in literal spaces in the glob pattern, you can escape them with either double quotes, or backslashes. e.g. glob('c:/"Program Files"/*/*.dll'), or glob('c:/Program\ Files/*/*.dll'). The argument is tokenized using Text::ParseWords::parse_line(), so see ParseWords for details of the quoting rules used.

Extending it to csh patterns is left as an exercise to the reader.


EXPORTS (by request only)

glob()


BUGS

Should probably be built into the core, and needs to stop pandering to DOS habits. Needs a dose of optimizium too.
