It always annoyed me that they didn't use "*" as a standard wildcard in AmigaDos. There are some PD shells (zshell) that allow '*' and possibly other command formats that are more user-friendly.
That's the one! Thanks A bit strange though - ""

Interesting to see that #? is the wildcard. Being a bit rusty I've tried * and found it didn't work, so either copied the directory or used ALL.
