[Scilab-users] listfiles wildcards on linux & documentation
The documentation of listfiles is not really clear to me:
"Patterns are given to the Unix ls or to the Windows dir commands
in order to get information about files."
With my limited understanding of unix/linux, I thought that the
wildcards (patterns) are expanded by the shell, then the result gets
passed to ls.
I don't understand what patterns ls is supposed to expand here.
Anyway, here is my issue:
- in a shell, I can do :
- but in the same directory, this pattern does not work with listfiles
Does anyone know the "patterns" that are supported by listfiles under
Windows, MacOS and Linux?
Should this info be added to the help file for listfiles?
