Description jpeek 2000-04-14 15:36:30 UTC
ls [A-Z]* seems to match independently of case with the shipped zsh

Interestingly ls [A-B]* does not macth b* but [A-C]* or [B-Z]* does.

Installed zsh.3.1.6 which seems to fix it, but this is probably beta zsh

Lost a bunch of file using this, hopefully I had backups.

I've confirmed the bug and reported it to the zsh-team - and will try to find

Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-04-18 16:35:59 UTC
The problem is that when using a locale, A < a < B. This doesn't only affect
zsh, but also bash2. I'm not sure about what to do with it - explicitly
unsetting LC_COLLATE (setting it to POSIX, perhaps) in the program might be one
solution, but what side effects would that have?

Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-04-18 18:39:59 UTC
The glibc way of sorting doesn't make sense

Comment 4 Jakub Jelinek 2000-08-24 07:41:13 UTC
This has changed recently, both fnmatch/glob and regex should behave more
