Sorry, I've had it wrong, bad memory.

In zsh, it's **/ that is a shortcut for (*/)# obiously otherwise
(if ** were short for (*/)#) **.c would match any file named
".c" in any subdirectory, and ** alone is not special.

In ksh93, ** matches any file in any directory and subdirectory,
while you need **/* in bash or zsh (**/* will also work in ksh).
