I'd love to see a glob_filter() function that filters an array of file paths for those file paths matching a glob, with the same rules used by glob(). This function is needed when a virtual file system (implemented in PHP) should be globbed for files.


glob_filter(array $paths, string $glob[, int $flags = 0])

$paths - an array of file system paths
$glob - a glob
$flags - the glob() flags

Result: an array of matching file system paths

Test script:
$input = array(

foreach (glob_filter($input, '/*/*.css') as $path) {
    echo $path."\n";

Expected result:

It seems to me that it isn't hard to implement in userland, and I
don't see a real advantage doing it in C.  As such, this feature
requires discussion for which this bug tracker is not suitable.
So if you, or anybody else, is still interested in this, please
forward the request to the internals mailing list.  For the time
being, I'm suspending this ticket.
