Hi zsh'ers,

This glob works when executed on the CLI

$  ls [^~](#i)*xls*(.om[1])
something_with_xls_in_it.xls

But not in a file

 $ /usr/bin/zsh --no-rcs -x bin/lastmatch
+/etc/zsh/zshenv:15> [[ -z /Users/eric/bin: ... other path here ////bin:/usr/bin ]]
bin/lastmatch:2: no matches found: [^~](#i)*xls*(.om[1])

 $ zsh --version
zsh 5.1.1 (x86_64-ubuntu-linux-gnu)

Thanks to anyone who can help me to run this in a script.

ciao
Eric

You need to enable extendedglob option:

 setopt extendedglob
