+Calling @code{glob} will in most cases allocate resources which are used
+to represent the result of the function call. If the same object of
+type @code{glob_t} is used in multiple call to @code{glob} the resources
+are freed or reused so that no leaks appear. But this does not include

+The @code{globfree} function frees all resources allocated by previous
+calls to @code{glob} associated with the object pointed to by
+@var{pglob}. This function should be called whenever the currently used
+@code{glob_t} typed object isn't used anymore.
