glob() function

Documentation says:
"GLOB_NOCHECK - Return the search pattern if no files matching it were found."

Tests indicate that the search pattern is not returned 'verbatim', but rather an array (with wildcard characters in place) with each array element representing one possible combination of braced options, the whole array having all possible combinations.

Test script:
$qqq=glob(' with '.$language.'{-custom,-normal}.xml', GLOB_BRACE | GLOB_NOCHECK);

Thank you for this bug report. To properly diagnose the problem, we
need a short but complete example script to be able to reproduce
this bug ourselves. 

A proper reproducing script starts with <?php and ends with ?>,
is max. 10-20 lines long and does not require any external 
resources such as databases, etc. If the script requires a 
database to demonstrate the issue, please make sure it creates 
all necessary tables, stored procedures etc.

Please avoid embedding huge scripts into the report.

I can not reproduce your problem.

$qqq=glob(' with '.$language.'{-custom,-normal}.xml', GLOB_BRACE | 

This returns:

    [0] =>  with L:\WebServer\htdocs\language\es-ES{-custom,-normal}.xml

For me, which is the expected output according to the documentation. Can you 
please provide the output you get and include which version of PHP you're using 
and on what Operating System Software.

This is my result on two different installations:
    [0] =>  with L:\WebServer\htdocs\language\es-ES-custom.xml
    [1] =>  with L:\WebServer\htdocs\language\es-ES-normal.xml
