Using special characters on the compilation tools command-line

You can use special characters to select multiple symbolic names in some compilation tools command arguments:

  • the wildcard character * can be used to match any name

  • the wildcard character ? can be used to match any single character.

If you are using a special character on Unix platforms, you must enclose the options in quotes to prevent the shell expanding the selection.

For example, enter '*,~*.*' instead of *,~*.*.

Note

The armar command-line options must be preceded by a -. This is different from some earlier versions of armar, and from some third-party archivers.
