Load Files by Path

Files can be add in a Filestar session by entering paths.


Glob syntax is a way of specifying sets of filenames with wildcard characters. Here's a comprehensive explanation of different types of glob syntax:

  1. Asterisk (*): Matches any number of characters (including none). For instance, *.txt matches any file with an .txt extension.

  2. Question Mark (?): Matches any single character. For example, ?.txt would match a.txt, b.txt, but not ab.txt.

  3. Character Ranges [ ]: Matches any one of the enclosed characters. A range of characters can be specified with a dash. For example, [a-c].txt matches a.txt, b.txt, and c.txt.

  4. Negated Character Ranges [! ]: Matches any character not enclosed. For example, [!a-c].txt would match d.txt but not a.txt, b.txt, or c.txt.

  5. Curly Braces { }: Matches any of the comma-separated patterns inside the braces. For example, {file, test}.txt matches file.txt and test.txt.

  6. Literal Match: Any character not part of a special glob pattern (like *, ?, [ ], { }) matches itself.

  7. Backslash Escaping: A backslash can be used before a special character to treat it as a regular character. For example, \\* would match an actual asterisk *.

  8. Globstar: Used to match directories and files within. For example, **/*.txt matches all .txt files in all directories and subdirectories.
