The extended glob used excludes those filenames which match the second glob. The first one excludes filenames starting with "f". The second excludes those ending ".o". If a filename ends ".c" then it can not also, at the same time, end ".o". This says nothing about whether or not there exists a different filename which has the same basename, but ends ".o" instead of ".c". -- Some mornings it's just not worth gnawing through the straps.
