listdir() with mask

Hello!

Is there any easy way to list files using bash-like patterns? Something like
listfiles("/var/log/*.log"), listfiles("/var/{cache,run}/*").

Also, I'll need something like listfiles("/tmp/**/*.tmp"), where ** is
unlimited number of folders (like is zsh).

Thanks and sorry for my English.
