Thanks for the spelling tip ... (sometimes I need to type s-l-o-w-e-r)

My intent wasn't to marginalize your quest. It was a serious question
to find out if you are looking to do something like create a document
or to solve a practical problem.

Sorry you feel like you're being challenged. I don't think that's the
case. There are a lot of folks here that love to help people solve
problems and find answers.

Part of the problem, IMO, is that the globbing isn't something built
specifically for tsvn or svn. It's included as part of a library
that has far greater capability than what's normally used by tsvn/svn.

My guess is that these were included as part of a cut and paste operation
from globbing docs somewhere else. The lack of response you're getting
tells me that they in fact are rather esoteric examples.

I don't have answers readily available for you, but Google is my friend
and I will search for a good quick reference for you.
