;;; Commentary:
;; Argument predication is used to affect which members of a list are
;; selected for use as argument. This is most useful with globbing,
;; but can be used on any list argument, to select certain members.
;; Argument modifiers are used to manipulate argument values. For
;; example, sorting lists, upcasing words, substituting characters,
;; etc.
;; Here are some examples of how to use argument predication. Most of
;; the predicates and modifiers are modeled after those provided by
;; zsh.
;; ls -ld *(/) ; list all directories
;; ls -l *(@u'johnw') ; list all symlinks owned by 'johnw'
;; bzip2 -9v **/*(a+30) ; compress everything which hasn't been
;; accessed in 30 days
;; echo *.c(:o:R) ; a reversed, sorted list of C files
;; *(^@:U^u0) ; all non-symlinks not owned by 'root', upcased
;; chmod u-x *(U*) : remove exec bit on all executables owned by user
;; See the zsh docs for more on the syntax ([(
;; Generation]).
