[Help-bash] Pathname expansion without word splitting

Hi There,

I have tried to work this out by myself, but despite many years experience
writing bash scripts I was stumped a bit by this one:

Given an array of pathname patterns, create a new array with all matching
file names (and only those) without running an external command. Be aware
that the pathname patterns may contain blanks (otherwise it would be too
simple ;-).

Extra points if done without a loop. ;-)

Please include me in a reply as I'm not subscribed to the list.
