When looking at how various operating systems do filename wildcard expansion
(globbing), VMS has a nice syntax which allows expansion and searching of
whole directory trees. It would be nice if other operating systems had
something like this built in. The best Unix can manage is through the utility
program find.
File::Wildcard provides this facility to Perl. Whereas native VMS syntax uses
the ellipsis "...", this will not fit in with POSIX filenames, as ... is a
valid (though somewhat strange) filename. Instead, the construct "///" is
used as this cannot syntactically be part of a filename, as you do not get
three concurrent filename separators with nothing between (three slashes are
used to avoid confusion with //node/path/name syntax).
You don't have to use this syntax, as you can do the splitting yourself and
pass in an arrayref as your path.
