Right. I guess we could change it so that CTLESC is preserved to distinguish between the backslashes from parameter expansion vs. backslashes from open input. > The [ character would mark the whole string possibly-meta in expandmeta(), > and the CTLESC wouldn't be seen there. Then, preglob() turns it into \[, and > expmeta() wouldn't take [ as a meta character, but would take \ as a meta > character. Oh I though you were talking about test/[, I didn't see the set. But why would someone do set "["? > Then, how about moving some of expmeta()'s checks to return early outside of > it, so that they can also be done in the glob() case? We could.
