I did this

This sample code hits an infinite loop in curl_fnmatch.c

#include <curl/curl.h>

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
  CURLcode ret;
  CURL *hnd;

  hnd = curl_easy_init();
  curl_easy_setopt(hnd, CURLOPT_URL, "[*\\s-'tl");
  curl_easy_setopt(hnd, CURLOPT_VERBOSE, 1L);
  curl_easy_setopt(hnd, CURLOPT_USERPWD, "demo:password");
  curl_easy_setopt(hnd, CURLOPT_WILDCARDMATCH, 1L);

  ret = curl_easy_perform(hnd);

  hnd = NULL;

  return (int)ret;

This problem does not exist in the curl tool because this is rejected by tool_urlglob.c.

curl_fnmatch: return error on illegal [] wildcard pattern
... instead of doing an infinite loop!
