glob_log('current dir', '.')
glob_log('js in current dir', '*.js')
glob_log('everything under current dir', '**')
glob_log('all js under current dir', '**/*.js')
glob_log('parent directories', '...')
glob_log('hidden files', '.../.*')
glob_log('available modules', '.../node_modules/*')
glob_log('local package files', '.../{package,component}.json')

stopping early

because this module uses pull-streams, it's lazy, so you can do queries like the following:
//find the first package.json in a parent directory.
pull(glob('.../package.json'), pull.take(1), log())

And you will retrive only the first item, and will not do any extra IO. This is hugely useful when doing a large traversal...

collect nodemodule tree

pull(
  glob('**/node_modules/*/package.json'),
  pull.collect(function (e, arr) {
    console.log(arr)
  })
)
