in thread Shell expansion with <> is funky

I appreciate the work around the sage advice about prototypes - I would beg to differ with japhy , however, that my question has been answered. I could use glob , but I would rather use <> and I am not sure why the angle brackets are not behaving as advertised. My question is, in a nutshell - why are angle brackets not resulting in correct shell expansion on succesive iterations of a loop. This is puzzling and still remains unanswered. Thanks, Tom
