        No! no, cometh backeth, Giorgos!  No war, just peace, love
        anf flowers:-)   Actually, I do use zsh, just have no clue how to
        set noglob.  I was going to ask, but didn't want to show my
        ignorance.  [[ been using zsh for 16, 17 years... ]]

        Anyway, NOT to get into any kind of war--there being enuf
        stupidity in the world--but I'm thinking of having essentially
        a bare-threaded program loader.  A trivial shell (tsh?) that 
        does little more than take any ISO.8859-[1-2] character and 
        do a fork-exec.  Even "[" which is really /usr/bin/test, 
        would be sucked in as a plain "[".   I do a  lot of regex
        stuff that meaning finding obscure patterns in text files or
        marked-up files.  I've got the regex book and a cheatsheet
        several K lines long.  (****)

        Chuck, exactly what does noglob do? How to set/unset,  please?
