I'd love to see a function glob_match() that matches a path against a glob using the same rules used by glob(). This function is needed when a virtual file system (implemented in PHP) should be globbed for files.


glob_match(string $path, string $glob[, int $flags = 0])

$path - a file system path
$glob - a glob
$flags - the glob() flags

Result: true if the path matches, false otherwise

Test script:

var_dump(glob_match('css/style.css', '*/*.css'));
var_dump(glob_match('js/script.js', '*/*.css'));

Expected result:
