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:
