Hi there!

I noticed an error in the glob(3) manpage:
http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man3/glob.3.html

    No tilde
       expansion or parameter substitution is done; if you want these, use
       wordexp(3).

However, the manpage does list a GLOB_TILDE flag that does do tilde
expansion. This should probably mentioned in the introductory
paragraph as well, as an alternative to wordexp.

Thanks,
Christian
