Globs

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. 1.
    Asterisk (*): Matches any number of characters (including none). For instance, *.txt matches any file with an .txt extension.
  2. 2.
    Question Mark (?): Matches any single character. For example, ?.txt would match a.txt, b.txt, but not ab.txt.
  3. 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. 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. 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. 6.
    Literal Match: Any character not part of a special glob pattern (like *, ?, [ ], { }) matches itself.
  7. 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. 8.
    Globstar: Used to match directories and files within. For example, **/*.txt matches all .txt files in all directories and subdirectories.
