glob -- Find pathnames matching a pattern


array glob ( string pattern [, int flags])

The glob() function searches for all the pathnames matching pattern according to the rules used by the shell. No tilde expansion or parameter substitution is done.

Returns an array containing the matched files/directories or FALSE on error.

例 1 Convenient way how glob() can replace opendir() and friends.

foreach (glob("*.txt") as $filename) {
    echo "$filename size " . filesize($filename) . "\n";

This could result in the following output:

funclist.txt size 44686
funcsummary.txt size 267625
quickref.txt size 137820

See also opendir(), readdir() and closedir(), fnmatch() and the unix manpage on glob(3) for flag names (as long as they are not documented here ).
