Comment 1 Matthew Booth 2009-07-14 21:47:40 UTC
A little man page digging threw up wordexp(3).

Comment 2 Richard W.M. Jones 2009-07-15 10:47:25 UTC
Using wordexp or glob is more complicated because you would
have to prevent it from expanding other globs (eg '*') in the
path.  This patch takes a more direct approach using getpwent:
