"Parameter expansion (Globbing)
When an argument for a program is given on the commandline, it undergoes
the process of parameter expansion before it is sent on to the command."
1. (text, operating system) (regexp, RE) One of the wild card
patterns used by Perl and other languages, following Unix utilities such
as grep, sed, and awk and editors such as vi and Emacs. Regular
expressions use conventions similar to but more elaborate than those
described under glob."
Any intro tutes on these concepts?
