What is a glob?
A glob (or "glob pattern") is a way to specify a set of text entities (like names or tags) based on a simple wildcard pattern - a bit like a very simple regular expression. For example, if you wished to match all the entities that had the word "new" anywhere in their text, you could use the glob
*new*. Or if you wanted words only starting with "new", you could use the glob
Globs use wildcards to match strings of text. See below for the list and explanations of each. Globs are case sensitive. Spaces are considered characters.
|Wildcard||Description||Example||Matches||Does not match|
|matches any number of any characters including none|
|matches any single character|
|matches one character from the bracket|
|matches one character from the range given in the bracket|
