Defining files with wildcard characters

Wildcard characters can be used to represent many other characters. Use them whenever you need to define a string of characters, such as a filename, for use with a command.

Useful wildcards are:

*        matches any characters

?        match any single character

[...]    matches any character in the enclosed list or range.
