in reply to A conversation with a C programmer

I have to scratch my head about the C programmer who is not already familiar with glob().

    I've been using C for best part of 25 years, but I'd never encountered glob() until I used Perl.

    Guilty. I just did a man glob and discovered it's right there in the libraries. Wow. I'd always used the findfirst and findnext functions before.

    I used C from 1981 regularly till about 1998, when I moved over to Perl, and during that time I'd never seen a glob function in the C run time libraries I used

    So, go ahead, scratch away.
