So I'm using Mac OS X 10.5, and I have a file called
that is being handled funny.
will show the file, but
ls -l *
will not. It's just this one file; note
ls -l | wc -l
gives 43 (the number of files in the directory), but
ls -l * | wc -l
So the question is -- Are there filenames that OSX just doesn't play nicely with? Or are the semantics of the * on the command line different from what I expect?
(Note this is NOT the only file whose name begins with an underscore; the other files are picked up just fine by *).
