The man page seems buggy:

It works _without_ the ticks(quotes) contrary to what the man page says.

Thanks a lot for your attention.


hmm.... I see, it's a shell pattern. If we put a '*' wild card in there, then it must have the single quotes. However, as the man page has it, the single quotes don't work.

Is it dependent on the bash that I'm using by any chance?
