> While answering [this question|http://stackoverflow.com/questions/34856838/concat-avro-files-using-avro-tools/34899425#34899425]
on stack overflow, I noticed that the concat tool does not support directories or glob patterns
as "input-file".
>  OP's use case seems very valid but accepting only files as input push the burden on
> I think that it makes sense to also accept directories as input like cat does. Supporting
glob patterns seems also useful if one want to concatenate the output of a MR job (in this
case passing the directory won't work because of the {{_SUCESS}} file).
> I have quickly patched {{concat}} to support files, directories and glob patterns. Support
of glob patterns has been added to {{cat}} since it seems useful too.
> This change should not introduce regression for users. But any feedback about glob patterns
is welcome.
