in thread string match using with an N in any position

Here's another idea: Regexp::Assemble is a module that can combine regexps — and possibly optimize the result. Granted, nowadays perl already optimizes large regexps, so it's not as useful any more as it once was.

Turning a glob pattern into a regexp isn't that hard: you can already get far by replacing every "?" with ".", "*" with ".*", and quotemeta everything else.

%s = ( '?' => '.', '*' => '.*' ); s/(\W)/$s{$1} || "\\$1"/ge;
