Subject: Should be more like sh(1) and less like glob(3)
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 652b
Regexp::Shellish supports *,?,**,...,{} and [] but that is more like glob(3) or fnmatch(3), not sh(1), specifically it leaves out: *(pattern|...|pattern) => pattern|...|pattern)* +(pattern|...|pattern) => (pattern|...|pattern)+ ?(pattern|...|pattern) => (pattern|...|pattern)? @(pattern|...|pattern) => (pattern|...|pattern) !(pattern|...|pattern) => (?!(?:pattern|...|pattern) ... almost (these could be turned off by default and enabled when option extglob is set, a la bash) in addition it passes (pattern|...|pattern) through unmodified by default when it should assume parens=>0 unless the parentheses are preceded by *,+,?,@ or !
