Wildcard/glob file name matcher.
Wildcard Match provides an enhanced
glob library. In some ways it is similar to Python's builtin
glob as it provides functions to match, filter, and glob the file system. But it adds a number of
features found in Bash's globbing such as backslash escaping, brace expansion, extended glob pattern groups, etc. It
also adds a path centric matcher called
globmatch which functions like
fnmatch for paths. Paths that would normally
be returned when providing
glob a pattern should also be properly match in
Wildcard Match uses Bash as a guide when making decisions on behavior in
glob. Behavior may differ from
Bash version to Bash version, but an attempt is made to keep Wildcard Match up with the latest relevant changes. With
all of this said, there may be a few corner cases in which we've intentionally chosen to not exactly mirror Bash. If
an issue is found where Wildcard Match seems to deviate in an illogical way, we'd love to hear about it in the
If all you are looking for is an alternative
glob that follows much more closely to Bash, Wildcard
Match has you covered, but Wildcard Match also adds a file search utility called
wcmatch that is built on top of
globmatch. It was originally written for Rummage, but split
out into this project to be used by other projects that may find its approach useful.
- Adds support for
- Adds support for escaping characters with
- Add support for POSIX style character classes inside sequences:
[[:alnum:]], etc. The
Clocale is used for byte string and Unicode properties for Unicode strings.
- Adds support for brace expansion:
ab ac ad.
- Adds support for extended match patterns:
- Adds ability to match path names via
globmatchas well as traditional file system searching via glob.
- And more...
