Sorry, I've done this under DOS, Win32 and Java, but not under Linux but I'm
sure its the same.
There's bound to be a function that'll return a list of all files in the
current directory. Then it's simple programming to see which of them fits
the wildcard. Then once you have a list of files to play you just open the
file and do stuff etc.
If you're really lucky there may be functions under Linux to return a list
of files that match the wildcard but I'n not sure.
Oh, and I'm assuming you know how to program. In case you don't, every
C/C++ program has a function called main. Main has two parameters - the
number of command line parameters and an array of strings containing the
parameters - this is the operating system's doing.
Hope this satisfies your curiosity.

for mpg123 code that does that, but couldn't find it.
