glob

glob is an adaptation of Go's path.Match that is not specific to paths. * will match any sequence of characters including / and ? will match any character including /.

Go's path.Match is significantly faster than existing Go glob implementations (as well as regexp) if your usage pattern is to match against a glob pattern once and then discard it (as opposed to matching against a glob pattern many times in a tight loop):
