<?php
$iterator 
= new GlobIterator('*.dll'FilesystemIterator::KEY_AS_FILENAME);

if (!
$iterator->count()) {
    echo 
'No matches';
} else {
    
$n 0;

    
printf("Matched %d item(s)\r\n"$iterator->count());

    foreach (
$iterator as $item) {
        
printf("[%d] %s\r\n", ++$n$iterator->key());

GlobIterator doesn’t have a way to support GLOB_BRACE!

<?php
$iterator
= new GlobIterator(getcwd. '/*.{php,txt}'); // generate an empty array
?>
