FWIW, in zsh's manual, "filename expansion" refers to ~user, ~1,
~-1, ~named-directory, =cmd while "filename generation" refers
to globbing.

In dash: Pathname Expansion (File Name Generation)

In mksh: file name generation

In ksh93: File Name Generation

In yash: Pathname expansion (globbing)

In tcsh: Filename substitution

In fish: globbing
