    sh(1): Improve documentation of shell patterns:
    * Shell patterns are also for ${var#pat} and the like.
    * An '!' by itself will not trigger pathname generation so do not call
      it a meta-character, even though it has a special meaning directly
      after an '['.
    * Character ranges are locale-dependent.
    * A '^' will complement a character class like '!' but is non-standard.
