A file which matches the pattern in multiple ways is returned multiple times

See original GitHub issue

Suppose I have the following file: C:\files\a\a\a\b.txt When I use the following code: string[] matchingFiles = Glob.Files(@"C:\files", "**/a/**/b.txt").ToArray(); matchingFiles result is:

[0] = a\a\a\b.txt
[1] = a\a\a\b.txt
[2] = a\a\a\b.txt

When I add another a\ subfolder, it gets another item added etc.

Is this by design? I would rather get distinct values.

Fixed in version 1.1.7

How about just using a HashSet<string> to store the paths? That way, duplicates won’t be stored, and it’s O(1) insertion time complexity (almost no cost).
